    The reason why she cried

    You touched her every night,
    Every time she cried.
    She couldn't utter the words
    So her tears asked why.

    She had no comprehension
    Of sex as it should be,
    Or would mean
    If she had never been molested.
    All she knew was all she felt.
    And she only ever felt
    Pain.

    Pain that started between her thighs.
    Exploded inside.
    Sending shockwaves through her body
    That flowed through her veins
    Then
    Into her mind.
    She'd tightly shut her eyes
    With the hopes that she might fly
    To a happier place.
    But she had no wings.

    At night she found no peace in sleep
    Because she knew that you were coming.
    During the day
    She cried, she was hopeless and tired.
    She saw no way
    To escape perverse reality
    To escape mental and physical agony.
    Sometimes I'd see her happy,
    Tears would cease.
    But the escape was only temporary,
    She sought a permanent release.

    She was fourteen when she died.
    From the age of nine,
    She had kept this secret inside.
    Till she was bold enough to devise
    A plan for suicide.
    Left a letter telling why
    So we would know why she cried.
    This girl died
    Three years ago but still today,
    We cry.
    I cry.
    Our tears ask you why
    You touched her.

    You emotionally conveyed why this is such a heinous act, and why the guilty should be ashamed. I could feel the deep ache in this piece.
