you ripped off her innocence,
made her recoil into a shell of shame and pain,
made her throw away the seed of trust.
her trust was stripped,
her thoughts clouded by you;
you gave her no chance no fight,
you isolated her heart.
if only she knew,
she would have chosen a different path.
you overpowered her might,
her inaudible cries louder than a thousand voices.
you continue to appear in her thoughts:
she is lost after your departure;
her pain can be cut with a knife,
yet she chose not to tell an ear about you.
it is the stigma you have caused,
and so she made a decision,
to keep silent about your visit.
