0206 I Survived [30 August 1998]

Until you left,
I had forgotten what freedom was.
I thought I had loved you
And that you had loved me.
It seemed I was wrong.

All I was ever used for
Was terror and rape.
What was love to me
Now I know was hate.
I married a monster.

Long nights I thought were passionate,
Were really ways to rape.
You stole my teenage innocence
By taking me at nineteen
And breaking my resolve.

But now I stand tall,
For you left me,
Believing I would die
If you abandoned me
But I survived.

I survived.
