Here is a poem about innocence lost. I was almost raped a few weeks ago and even though it did not happen I still feel that my innocence was stripped away from me in a few short moments. Here are my thoughts.

Destroying all innocence

Torn from me

Never to get it back

Because of my silence it haunts me

The day is gone but never forgotten

A day of fun turned into a nightmare

Runs over and over throughout my head

Unwanted touching

Rough handling

Why didn’t I tell?



Some secrets are meant to be exposed

The word “help” has no meaning

Should have spoken up

“Ouch” “Stop it”

Words to no effect

Small body vs. big body

You do the math

Pulling away, all to no effect

Going back and forth like a yoyo

Eyes staring, thinking that it’s all fun

But they do not know what going on



They do not see my face

Soft-spoken voice and quiet demeanor

Thinking that it’s all good

The underlying pain is written on my face

Some see it, some do not

But they all ignore it

I manage to get away

But my innocence is left with him

Not physically, but emotionally

Will it ever come back?

Possibly but not anytime soon


Loud music, dancing, guy and girl

Pretty fun looking
