Innocence Stolen

He comes to my room
Late in the night
When my mom is asleep
And turns off the light
What do i do what do i do
He's by my bed side
He slips his hand under my cover
And i just cried
I'm only 12 years old
I don't like what he is doing
I feel so dirty and bad
My heart the hate is chewing
I can't take it anymore
Why won't he leave me alone
I just want to be a kid
But now my innocence is gone
He told me don't tell
It would kill my mother 
He told me don't tell
He would kill my little brother
I feel so stuck
Who now will want me as a wife
There's only one thing left to do
So i took my own life

    This is so strong and deep. Powerful and sad. You wrote some very disturbing words and the readers heart breaks. Good job I wrote on on this subject also called "A Secret Hell" It is posted on my wall.

    This is hard to read. Nobody wants to face the reality that this happens all too much. Evil men preying one the young and week. Hope someone reading this will find courage to stop these predators when they can.

    I hope you're around to read this, April. This has happened to me and my sister too, although it was a 'trusted' friend of my father's. Just put an end too it, bite the sob, draw blood, and let him explain what he;s doing there! HA! Time, and God do heal old wounds. have faith. Love and hugs, Catie :) PS ~ I have a long, lost cousin whose name is April Mitchell. She has a brother Bert, and a sister, Bonnie. Hugs. Catie :)
