When Innocence is stolen can it ever be gained back?

Stolen innocence


Her smile hides the pain her soul will never forget

her eyes sparkle when she laughs, behind the twinkle is the frozen frame

of her own pain. Her mind runs through the scene over and over

playing different things she could have done. Showing her

how many mistakes she made long ago.

Her heart tells her to move on, her soul tells her to move on.

Her mind tells her she will never move on.

Years and decades pass by but her heart and mind sit in the

time where she found out this old world isn't as innocent as she once thought.

What he took from her she can never regain, what her family took

she can never piece together again.

Back then she had been on the verge of woman and a child, her body showing

womanhood, her mind and heart still a child.

What he saw was the pure innocence of a child he stole, for a moment of

pleasure that brought her a lifetime of pain.

Sure this world moves on, her life still moves on but her

eyes still see the lust and evil she saw in him

as fresh today as it was fifteen years ago.

Her parents not believing her, she was forsaken her pain learning

to sit in a locked soul, growing and seething only showing when

she had overflown. Her tears she has shed could fill the ocean

several times over. She won't know the feeling of a first love,

she won't know the feeling of protection, she won't ever get back the

one thing they all stole.

No matter the time her soul will never forget the stolen

innocence taken from her... ....
