Stolen Innocence (Free verse) by TLRufener
I had true innocence Just once in my life I gave myself to you And I wanted to die I thought you were all mine Was I ever wrong I sit with my used and pathetic self And wonder why it took so long My tears turned to dust My sun turned to rain I became your whore And your pleasure turned to pain I gave you my heart Body and soul You were my every thought You had total control You kissed my lips And took me to your bed Then you tore out my heart Leaving me cold and dead I’ll never forgive myself Hatred fills my head Now I’m just another whore That you took to bed You stole my innocence And tarnished my identity I am now another girl That is just too easy Old men and young men Come just to sleep with me But you will forever Be the only man I see Your looks drew me in And held me so near All you did was cause torment And confirm all my fears You tossed me out Tortured and used I can’t possibly answer For each cut and bruise Men come to me Because I can’t feel I have too many scars For anyone to heal I still want you Even with all this dread I miss you I yearn to be back in your bed If you wanted me again I wouldn’t need to think twice Because you stole my innocence And you took my life

Yeah I believe it can happen that way. I'd prefer less redundancy and more clever lines, but you've caught glympse of a path I might have taken, but for fortune.

We've all had our hearts broken. The difference between us and you is the capacity to learn from our mistakes. You didn't have your life taken, you're just brain dead.

Innocence is overrated. And yet, if you think your life's ruined without it, you still have it.
