Stolen Innocence: A lasting Wound

Rape-Crime-in-Sweden

Live…..
Every day she passes by the house where she died
It mocks her ….
The doors scoff at her
The windows giggle as she passes
And the walls scowl at her presence
she shudders
And looks away

Every day she walks by the house where she died
She glares at the walls of the room
where her blood was shed
Where innocence was bruitaly stripped from her 13 year old womb
Where her thoughts were muffeled
And her cries became a gargle in her throat
Where she was ripped in two turned inside out , gutted and discarded.
She shudders

She still remembers the scent of his breath
The smell of his sweat
The smirk on his face when his intrusion drew blood
How confused she was by his smile
While she silently cried
How he hurriedly ushered her out when the deed was done as if throwing out the trash
Or letting the dog out…… he was satisfied
Her spirit died

Transformed into an embodied ghost of her former self
Not knowing where self resided
Searching for happiness behind every open door
Anything to numb the pain of her passing
Anything to close the bleeding gaping wound
That drained out her joy
That bled her peace……. Tormented …..

Life…. a life sentence of charades
Personalities are created to mask every unwanted emotion
Never acknowledging the emptiness embedded in her soul
Yet constantly on the proul to fill the hunger for the intangible
To kill the yearning
Silence the desire
For … something…

Something is missing
It was stolen
Taken
Without remorse
Unapologetically
Never to be replaced
Never to be regained
never to be reversed
Lost forever
Dead

Twenty years later……
Every day she passes by the house where she died
And she glares at the walls of the room where her blood was shed
Where her innocence was bruitaly stripped from her thirteen year old womb
Where her thoughts were muffeled
And her cries became a gargle in her throat
Where she was ripped in two and tured inside out
And she shudders
Then a small voice inside
Whispers
Gently pleading:
“You survived…. Live….Live….. LIVE”
