I wanted to run...

I felt ok til today

I wanted to run, but where
I wanted to cry, but to whom
I've felt so lost
Abandoned and abused
My flesh cries out
My soul feels confused
I waited for you, but you never showed
Alone I was left
While you did your own
An outcast I am
Broken by you
Used in distorted pleasures
Consciously desiring you
And yet my heart cries
Where are you
A devoted sacrifice
Years of pain
Consecrated and set apart
Yet all in vain
All that is left
Is the scars that remain
