You torment me.
Inviting your friends at night.
Forcing me to switch on the lights

You don’t allow me to speak in public,
When I do, you lower my voice chords.
You scramble my words,
You steal sense from my sentences

Your obsession with me
Has turned me into your possession
You have built walls of Jericho around me
And locked me in a tower

My loneliness gives you pleasure
My emptiness fills your treasure
You stole my life
You took my existence

When will you set me free, fear?
