this is where I am at

Down dark alley

Bookmark and Share

Years I held back of untold truth
Dark memories of that fateful night
It took me years to be this strong
And the secret finally to reveal

Walking the night alone with fear
Passing a dark alley in a corner
Standing among the walls in the dark 
A masked face of unknown

Pushing  into the stony wall
His touch on my body with hunger
Hurting deep more and more
I became his pray in a dark alley

I battled hard to save my self 
My screams were just lost of words of pain
The scars in mind of that night
Will hurt me every second of life

Why was I punished, is it for my innocence
Was it because I was helpless
No girl deserve such cruelty of pain 
And rape is a crime which cannot be forgiven

It's only me who knows what pain it caused
It's only me who suffered this long 
I'm a daughter, sister and friend to someone
And treat as I'm one of your own

A very touching poem and the pain of a rape victim is beautifuly put out in words. No one can forgive a rapist and in the end it is the victim who suffers for life. While reading this it brought lot of mixed emotions and having no experince, you made me picture how it could have been. It is always the gift for a writer to make things feel actual for the reader, so thumbs up for you
