What do you do when you are
being touched against your will
When every cell in your body
is screaming to escape
when your mind has tried to leave you
and your heart has pronounced itself dead.

How do you rise from the ground
where you have justbeen ripped open
Go about another day
without the weight of him crushing you

Ignoring your screams
they averted their eyes
choosing to be blind and deaf
speaking out is
much too hard

How do you look on the face
of the child born of that night
does the face of one so innocent
cause your heart to melt
or does it only remind you
of the horror that was

How can you live
like it didn’t happen
How can you live
when I just watched myself die
