I was hiding
behind the dresser...
Paralyzed with fear,
unable to speak.
Too afraid to move,
hiding in the dark,
huddled there
after what they did to me.

I tried to be brave,
I didn't scream,
afraid they'd come back,
I was hiding.
No one could save me,
No one came..
Hiding , naked,
covered in shame...

Rabbit girl
caught in a terrible trap,
now there's no
turning back.
Vomiting over
the side of the bed;
am I bruised
is there blood on my head?

'Who will come and
wrap their arms around me?
God came, God came,
oh God came and found me...
Who is brave enough to reach for me?
Oh I hurt..
Help me, please help me.. wash off this dirt...

Invisible bruises~ invisible scars~
invisible me~ hiding in the dark..
