It Happened - Poem by Hannah Diane Williams

Something so precious was taken
Away from me.
So I started to give the other
Precious parts of me
Away.

Maybe I wanted some control over
My own body.
Because it had been taken away from me
For so long.

I didn't realize the control
I thought I had would cause
So much pain
And regret.

Maybe I wanted to be loved
So I quit saying no
To the things I didn't
Want to do.
And that's when it really started
To hurt.

Whateverit was I wanted,
I still don't know what it was,
But I know I never got it.
And I just ended up with an
Empty heart.

Still, I will accept, my past
I can't change.
It happened.

Topic(s) of this poem: depression, rape, regret, sex


Poet's Notes about The Poem

This is a very personal poem, and was partially inspired by the song, "The Love of A Man" by Cimorelli....I don't know what else to say, except it's a lot I needed to get out.
