Darkest Night - Poem by jess schwarcz

He comes silently.
Taking what he wants violently.
Nothing had been seen,
She was only fifteen.

Through her cries,
She sees his angry eyes.
The month after December,
His words, always remember,
'No worries,
You won't have mem’ries.'
She thought they could have coped,
Than realizing he was full of dope.
Too scared to give a fight,
Knocked out for part of the night.

Running wild there’s a rapist,
No one to call witness.
He’ll never be 25 in jail,
She tries to speak, but fails and fails.
Even if she can’t be blamed,
Saying anything, she's too ashamed.

If by him, she was found,
She fears she might drown.
He would make sure,
There’d be no sound,
Nothing would be found.

Ten months later, still ashamed to say
Yet her tears fall everyday
In guys she'll never have trust,
Never knowing who'll be unjust.
She might never take a chance,
For a future romance.
What’s happened in the past,
In her mind, will always last
