Since that night you sat on the stairs in the basement,
I think about you watching my innocence float away.
You could have prevented it, tried to stop it,
but you chose to remain in the shadows.
The lies you spat out to attempt to save yourself,
revealed the truth of your mind’s sick desires.
You shattered me and disseminated the pieces,
sending them beyond my memory’s reach.
As you invade my thoughts with your face and words,
I will drug the nightmares with alcohol and pills.
There is no excuse for your vile actions, or lack there of,
as you kill my soul one dream at a time.
