Don’t put the Blame on me …


my insides hurt

they pain

and cramp

and ache

and strain

the memory

of what you did

I was


just  a child

and I loved you wild

with you

I felt



cared for.

but that touch

was that justified?

this must be

the way its done


and caring

and protecting.

yet it felt so wrong

this secret

we kept

from the

world all along

it rested heavy

on my little heart

when realization dawned

the hurt



and guilt

immense guilt

almost made my insides spill

had I brought it on?

Could I?

Did I?

Should I?

share the blame

of your unrestrained lust

your brutality

your sneakiness

your  shame

yes I did share your secret


the  crime wasn’t mine


Its scars I  bear

the wounds

so deep

they will always be there

my tormentor

at least now

let me be


please don’t

try to

put the

blame on me ….

    great entry dear.
    the agony, the pain INSIDE a little heart is something that cannot be equated to any other.
    it’s sad that this goes on in all societies.
    people trust blindly and the trust is misused by people with no sense of morality INSIDE their useless brains.

    1. true amiraI its not only no sense of morality it is also sly cunning because children are th eleast likely to disclose or bring the offender to books
