Innocence Stolen.

This is my first attempt at poetry. I am amazed at how different it feels to write poetry than basic blog posts. There is so much emotion attached when writing in this style. So, here’s to a new adventure, we will see where it goes. The title of this first piece is “Innocence Stolen.”

Come to my room, my dear

You have nothing to fear

It’s our time together

Please, let me float like a feather

Through the air, with the wind

I can’t get away, I’m pinned

What is happening? I don’t understand

Don’t worry my dear, this is all planned

What happened in your bed

Where my mother laid her head

Took what was mine

When I was just nine


Secrets unspoken.

Imagination broken.

Innocence stolen.


No more teddy bears

Or rocking chairs

My life was changed forever

When you decided to sever

My safety and trust

Now I’m filled with fear and disgust

No words, just silence

I must prevent his violence

Hear what my eyes are saying

On the inside, I’m decaying

Perfect on the outside

Please, someone find where I hide.

    “Decaying on the inside,” yes. The secrecy and silence. Any other trauma gets attention, support, love, help and healing. A child is injured so dramatically because of the secrecy and silence imposed upon her.
    Your writing hits home.

      Thank you so much for sharing your thoughts. My first dip in poetry and I was so unsure how it would come out.

    Wow. Powerful. I can see how poetry can help us recognize feelings and truths that journaling or blogging may not, because it is more left-brained/rational.

      I had that exact same thought about blogging being more left brained and poetry is totally right brained!
