A DREAM

Held under, submerged
I can barely breathe
Your hands on my throat
I just can’t believe.

Leaving me here
No safety net
So easy for you
To simply forget.

All of the promises
Nothing but lies
You stood there and laughed
As you watched me cry.

Stripped down, cold and naked
I wanted to scream
Lost all my pride
This must be a dream.

When I woke up
You had left, you were gone
How could I have been
So foolish, so wrong?

You left me here
With no safety net
So easy for you
No remorse, no regret.
