“Please don’t touch me” were the words that were spoken,
but he didn’t listen; his promises were broken.
Unwanted caress, he slips his hand up her dress.
Stealing a soul that’s not his, her body to posses.
Forceful domination, innocence frozen in fear.
Hiding inside, only feeling that one single tear.
Embedded scars, her heart forever closed.
Never opening again, pain never exposed.
Try and touch her heart, it seems happy on the surface,
bright cheery smile, distracting with a purpose.
Emotions concealed, don’t try to get in.
She’ll just smile, laugh and try to pretend.
With one evil touch, a soul was changed forever.
A bright shining light, hiding inside seems better.
Never know who she is, could be any random face.
Look into her eyes; can you see her disguised shame?
She wears a mask to the masquerade, the never ending dance.
True love can’t happen, never gives it a chance.
Scars never heal, in her world there’s no one to trust.
Her pain forever hides, because of one single touch.
