You offered me love
You gave me pain

You offered acceptance
You gave me loneliness

A child lost
Who thought she was found

You left me further adrift
Then I was before

A wounded child
You smashed wide open

Took my trust
My naiveté
My innocence

And tore my heart asunder

Left me curled up on the floor

Like the infant that I was

Heartbroken and alone
