I was a girl sold by my parents to the old,
“It’s okay, you’ll be safe here”, they said,
Strange men did things to me till I bled,
They said they loved me and told me to say it back,
Or they hit me until my bones cracked.
I have never had a true home,
Sometimes I wish I had a clone,
No way to escape this Bulgarian prison of mine,
Sex and ecstasy were the only companions I had for the first 12 years of my time.
No other life I have ever known.
Life next to the Balkans has never been so cold.
