A Little Girl In The Morning

Updated on June 8, 2011

A little girl in the morning.

A broken spirit at night.

He was to big for her to put up a fight.

No one will ever know about her muffled tears.

No one will ever know which man she fears.

She can still smell the scent of the unwanted act.

The blood that drips down between her legs make it a known fact.

She is just a skeleton in the shell.

A bucket going into an empty well.

She will never understand and her emotions will never be right.

Because she was a little girl in the morning.

And a broken spirit at night.

      @Majadez....thank you for stopping by. It always a pleasure to hear from you :)

      @MysteriouOne...Thank you for sharing your story. There are a lot of us out there. More than we want to think of. I am glad that this experience have not broken you. I always appreciate it when you stop by. God Bless You.

      @Denice...It is a hard thing to handle. I remember working at a hospital and a 3 year old girl was brought in because her brother hurt her in that way. It just broke my heart because I understood her pain. All over the world and every minute of the day, this is happening to a child. Thank you for stopping by and sharing. God Bless You.

      @Romancer...thank you for stopping by and sharing. I am sorry that you had to go through this. You are right it is easier to forgive. I have forgiven my abuser but I will never forget. I totally agree with you. I am happy that you were able to bring yourself back from a horrific experience that we both shared. God Bless You.

      *Tears* My heart broke on this one. Very sad indeed, but also very true. I relate to this... it was my reality once. It's easier to forgive... very hard to forget. I chose to keep my faith.

      Thank you for sharing this Ms. Sassy!

      Well written. Touching, tragic, and so true. I once cared for a young 4 yr old patient who would wake with night terrors from the trauma. It broke my heart and I ended up leaving the job after only 8 wks.

      "He was too big for her to put up a fight" Yes, that is the unfairness of it and then some...

      This is really heartbreaking and your writing style does a great job of making the emotions hit hard at the heart. Well written and thanks for sharing. It's a painful message of an ordeal that many choose to ignore or deny its existence.
