Long ago and far away
they took my innocence of life and play.
A child no more, with secrets hid,
"Don't tell" they said, uh-oh I did.

My value gone, life full of tears,
No sense of order, just my fears.
A silent scream shakes my mind,
But search I must, the truth to find.

With each step, the efforts great,
I can't go on--my life's at stake.
I'm drowning in this vile past,
I ache with fear, how long it lasts.

I scream, I cry, my skin I tear,
To pull this pain from a life I bear.
STOP--DON'T--can't look,
NO...PLEASE--My life they took!

I hate, I hurt,
I'm numb with pain.
Each day I wake to walk again,
but still "IT" remains!

I am in tears, litteraly. This is very deep, personal, and saddening. I feel for you. It is a great poem, but so sad. Keep posting, I love reading your poems, no matter how sad or happy they are. You have a real talent and a real passion in what you write!

Oh geez, Echo...That is a very deep poem. I hope though, that you are not keeping it all in as a silent scream, you need ot let that out. Scream as loud as you can...but that is my own opinion on that. That brought tears to my eyes though.

My dear this one cries such pain and anguish. You've done a great job expressing this. God bless you and no one deserves to be treated like that! Especially you!
