You Never Gave Me a Name

Red lights flash in and out at night
No one out there to see me in sight
No bite to eat in three days
Stuck alone in my room
But I know you’re out there doing your evil ways

For eight long years, you’ve enjoyed watching me suffer
Never giving me the love of a real father and mother
But I still remember your face of joy
Laughing as you filled me with pain
You never even gave me a name

You refused to hide your rage
Like burning an old book with every page
No amount of begging made you stop
As you made your way on top
But that night I learned you hurt

On one hand your blood is on my nails
The other I hold a small sharp stick of steel
I watch you scream and cry as I gave you pain
You were killed by the girl that you gave no name

You still haunt me in my dreams
Because I never forgot you making me scream
But I am now a stronger woman
Who has found love with the greatest man
Together we have taken my new name
To fight the scream of other people’s pain
