Stole your life


He destroyed your confidence, girl,
He’s the cause of your pain, girl
You got to be stronger than that, girl
Innocent girl you once were.

He stole your innocence, girl,
He took your love, girl
He buried it with others, girl,
Loving girl you once were.

He tore apart your faith, girl.
He turned everyone against you, girl.
He made your parents not trust you, girl.
Worthy girl you once were.

He took your life, girl.
Gave it a new name, girl,
He drew your blood, girl,
Living girl you once were.

    Strong and justifiably angry poem. I like the passion and indignation. Repetition of the word 'girl' is a staccato, natural echo throughout - and it reinforces the innocence of the victim. I like the powerful, simple, straightforward words and phrases (He drew your blood, girl) . Great ending line.

    Keep up the internal fire - passion makes the best poetry, and you have it. (Report) Reply
