Lock me away

Lock me away.
No one understands me, but that's not why I stay.
"Things could be worse." You say.
But you haven't been where I've been, so come down this way.

I'll show you how I became this.
And how good behavior, earns me a kiss.
An unwanted one at that.
I smell the ground everyday.

I smelt the grass once, too.
And the bedbugs sucked my tummy, too.
Has this happened to you, too?

Guess that's why only I feel this snake.
Consume me, consume me.
It's funny because I only smelt the ground once.
But it feels like a bunch.

Because I live with it everyday.
And my thoughts don't like me.
My head doesn't like me.
Figures.

Actually, I've only breathed sideways.
And that's how I breath forever until now.
But I still like it.
But only just a bit.
It ain't my fault I've come out this way.

i think the author is describing sexual abuse or rape... but the reality is too much yet that the descriptions are vague and laced with bitterness... She's describing feeling more than the act...
