I swam below the surface, dying... (with Reading)

I swam below the surface.
You tried to drown me there.
Violated by the current stripping me away.
Sharing in the mind's decay.
 
Picking up the pieces with bloodied hands.
In them I see all the love, it's not pretend.
You just need me to see the monster.
To have no mercy on me, I don't ask.
 
And each body speaks to you, me too.
You took me to the graveyard.
An Apex predator's hunting ground.
Taking credit for another kill.
 
You fed me to the wolves.
The perverts eating me, so many bones.
This will to live and feel everything.
Feeling each life taken again and again.
 
A malicious grin tormenting my soul.
And so I stare captivated, dying.
But so alive as I take off the disguise.
Death loves a beautiful dress and heels.
 
Wrapped in darkness, light bends around me.
As I accept my abuse taking it all in.
The emptiness is so filling.
Each time you kill me again, filling me.
