Stolen Love

Stolen Love

Getting off work late
Round about nine O’clock
Running through the alley
Across from the parking lot
Three feet from my car
Someone grabbed me from behind
One man appeared 
In front of me saying;
Don’t scream lady its fine

A strong arm around my neck
I found it hard to breathe
I found myself being dragged
Between two palm trees
Masks covered their eyes
Only their mouth did show
Why is this happening
I only wanted to know

“Please stop, Let me go!”
I don’t want your love
To do this selfish act
You got a lot of nerves.
A five minute pleasure
Turned into a life time of pain
I laid there on the ground
Telling myself I am to blame

All of my sorrow I 
Could no longer hide
Dead and ashamed is 
What I felt inside
Lying on the ground
I cried many tears
To have someone 
Take my love
What else can I feel?

Nothing will ever be
The same
I could never explain
How stolen love
Left me lifeless
And brought about
A change
The whole time they
Stole from me
They thought it was a game

Now I spend most of my 
Time looking in the mirror
Hating the person I see
Knowing that along the 
Way I am no longer me

I cannot change what they
Stole from me that night
They never had permission
Nor did they have the right
If I had the power to change
 One thing in my life;
It would be to skip the pain
That I endured that night

    Thanks Mandy. Sometimes life just doesn't seem fair, and I realize that few people are playing by the rule, but nevertheless it will be alright. I appreciate your thought and concerns, may God bless you always.

    Lillie, if this is true, Please please get counseling. If it has been a recent happening, it will still be painful but if it's been a long time and still you are thinking about it, I really hope you get help. you can't let this ruin your life. Don't let him win. Sorry this happened to you. Luv, Andrea

    Thanks Andrea. Sometimes no matter how hard you try to leave the past behind, it somehow finds its way back to hunt you even more. I am glad to have you guys as a friends and glad that you are concern for me. This alone helps a great deal. May God smile always upon you, and thanks so much.

    omg this is the saddest thing to hear. Did this really happen? I am quite angered by this. And if it did happen you should not feel ashamed. I am so sorry.

    Nicole, thanks for your support. At first I had doubts about writing this because it is so embarrassing. Then I said why not? Poetry is all about the way you feel right? I am thankful for your support and kindness. Thanks my friend, and may God always share your life, and be blessed in the Lord.
