View Full Version : WARNING POSS TRIGGER - just a poem i wrote

Stolen Innocence

You took something from me
Something that's gone forever
I lay helpless
As you take advantage
I cry in pain
I try to speak,
but no words
Voiceless and scared
You took my purity
My soul.

The looks and stares
an awkward silence,
the one word unspoken.
Iím the weak girl,
who didn't try hard enough
I am the one who sinned,
Not him. He did no wrong,
I did.

How could you do this?
Why is it my fault?
I wanted nothing.
You forced me to sin.
You forced away my purity, my innocence,

I had tried to say no
but my voice was against me.
As I lay there
Crying and unmoving
my eyes closed
Wishing it would stop.
The physical pain was not near
the mental pain I now hold,

My purity, which was dear,
is now considered old and sold.
My life is forever changed.
I had no choice
once your hands lay on my skin
it was do or die
though I wish I'd chosen the last.
For now I must face the questions and stares
the accusations of a lie.

I believe these bruises tell the story
and the pain when I walk,
the sound of my heart ripping
And the flow of my shedding tears.
Was I wrong to choose life?
I wonder that now,

Was I wrong to tell?
Yes I was.
It could have been a secret
nobody would know.
It could have been forgotten,
and all would be well.
It was my fault,
for not trying hard enough.

It is my fault the memories that,
I hold inside that
Will never see the light of day
Or the shining moon at night.
I chose my path to not speak

As his kiss and his touch will be.
He stole everything from me.
First my innocence,
Then my will to live,
Most of all He stole my purity
and my life.

My heart shredded,
and violated body in tow.
The court declared him innocent today
it was not the unspoken word.
If only they knew
I had not wanted to.
If only they knew
the memory I must go through,
and the mental scars,

That will never subdue.
The one thing I held most dear
my purity, which he stole,
Took, robbed, not offered.

It was just the unspoken word.
The one called RAPE!!!!

sorry sorry that it is yet another sad one but it is only how i feel deep down inside

:hugs: Dear Lea, :hugs:

Very very emotional, painful words of a lost childhood, and of a justice system that continues to let the survivors of child abuse down, time and time again.

Many others here including myself, will empathize with your words.

Hopefully the others, that have never experenced child abuse, might now understand a little of how survivors feel, and also why most abuse cases never get to court in the first place.

Thank you for not keeping this poem inside of yourself. This was one poem that needed to be written.

Big Hugs for you Lea

You are a very special friend and a very talented writer.
