I was an innocent victim

Poem by: Philip H20s

Summary

Sometimes it is the attacked who feel the weight of guilt, but this is simply NOT true. The guilt is and should be felt by the persecutor.

Before the rising tide, you could visibly see

Your imprints in my soul, after you rampaged me

But the sea of tears has failed to truly erase

A lingering image of you, alas still stays

I never teased or offered permission

I said no, you refused to listen

You tore tender pieces of my mental self

Your attack violently shook my fragile health

Sometimes in the dark I felt you near

Frozen with horror, wide awake with fear

To be alone was something I would seek to avoid

Whispers and shadows left me paranoid

You never cared to ask my name

Or watched as I hauled the heavy shame

Like delicate china striking a hardened floor

Forever be broken, vulnerable and raw

A wise person told me it's never too late

To remove from my life unnecessary weight

I carried your humiliation for far too long

I was an innocent victim, it was you who did wrong
