Innocence - Poem by Lorena Walker

you have scarred me

with this truth

that i will forever be haunted by you

i was a virgin, an innocent child

of only 10 years old

i have yet to bleed

but now i have this reminder

of what i told you not to do

in my underwear

and now i can not sleep

without my blankets wrapped tightly around me

and it is such a hot summer.

    A 'sleeper' with blankets wrapped tightly around in summer is a very good image
    This tropical thief of innocence is a villian.
