The night she will always remember
Her eyes wide, the lights dim around her
The fragrance of heat
Her body shakes fiercely
The silence is all that she craves
And yet it is the only thing destroying her.
At such a young age
Her innocence is claimed by another
A choice is never given.
A terrified heartbeat
Like the banging of a drum.
The thought of what just happened
Lingers in her mind.
The cold night
The whisper of fear in her heart.
Tears will stream down her face
For hours and hours to come
In the morning she will rise
Her eyes never rested.
The effect you had on me
I remember fear
I remember pain
However I do not remember you.
I remember that night
I fear you.
Some nights I still must lie awake
Or you shall visit me
Dreams are no longer safe
They are an entrapment of memories.
I remember the loneliness of that night
I live surrounded in the fear
I live through myself trying not to live
How could a one time occurrence
Stunt me so badly.
Today I will shun you
You no longer deserve my constant attention
I have learned this recently
You did not define that little girl
You did not destroy her soul
She is the most beautiful person
I still wonder how you could do that to me
But I no longer lie awake
Waiting for you.
I know your not coming back
You are not much more then a coward.
She has grown
A few years were lost
Four precious years
Her childhood became a secret she would never tell
But I rose above you
I told of you
I no longer fear you
I no longer cry
I no longer have to hide myself
I am no longer ashamed.
