Memory
******

She is alone again
and terrified one more time
Memories have clouded her vision
Nightmares have haunted her mind.

Don't close your eyes
Don't sleep without a light
Suddenly he is there
against all your might

Only 13 years old
tears roll down her face
Too young to understand
the insanity of the human race

Touching, groping
his hands burn your skin
Don't scream, don't fight because
you know you'll never win

She knows this is wrong
and begs for him to quit
but nothing can suppress
her fear of being hit

Don't tell anyone
about this night
Or he will hurt you
with all his might....

She is alone again
and terrified one more time
Memories will cloud her vision
Nightmares will haunt her mind.

BobbyCat-
This is powerfully chilling.
The events are terrifying and yet real
to far too many innocent victims.

I'd like to give them my voice
to SCREAM out!
I give them my prayers.

Wow bobbycat, this is very chilling and disturbing. You have portrayed this subject very well, without delving into graphic detail. Well done.

A very delicate subject and I think that you handled it very well.  I like the way in which the poem gets into the whole double edged sword(sorry for the cliche)of the whole thing.  I have never experienced this but I can now understand alittle better.

Thanks

Peace

I hate the idea within the poem...but you sure wrote and portrayed it well...

How tragic...

A very good description of the experience..... I liked it a lot. Although the subject is gruesome, perhaps it needs to be more fully explored?

 Time flies? Say it not so, time stays we go.

Thanks for everyone's great compliments. It took me three years to finally put this to pen and paper--that's when I realized that writing can be a healing form of therapy.....
