Innocence Lost

Every night as I lay in wait

Praying and hoping it would be a different story

Silently the door opens

I cannot run and I cannot hide

He comes in with stocking feet

Quietly so the secret won’t be told

He comes nearer

Close enough so I can feel his breath on my small body

As every other time, I close my eyes and wish I were anyplace else

A childhood shattered

And innocence lost
