My adaptation of Psalms 4
No one answered me when I called,
no one relieved me from my distress.
Who will comfort me or hear my prayer?
How long will he keep putting me to shame?
How long will he keep me in these chains?
Know that he has set you apart as a slave for himself
No one will save you from his clutches.
I trembled in his presence,
And when I was on his bed, I was utterly silent.
I was a sacrifice to feed his desires,
And trust became my enemy.
Who will bring me relief from my sorrow?
Where is the light that brings healing?
My heart is filled with dispair
And my body is consumed with fear
When the memories of old abound.
There is no peace when I lay down to sleep,
for I am completely alone
And no where can I dwell in safety.
