Angela Davis

Rookie (1976 / USA)

Shattered

My dreams shattered in the tense stillness
as endless threats and blows clothe my form
My stomach flutters in familiar fear
and I am ashamed of my weakness
My hope lies shattered in madness
cloaking my tender heart in bruises
as I choke on the bitterness of your deceit
Now I lie still, sedated by my sorrow
My spirit shattered with loneliness
