My soul and body misused
My arms and mind bruised
He held me up against my will
Leaving me emotionally ill
After he was done he left me to die
I held my head when all I could do is cry
Baring a child at a young age
My mind and soul full of rage

Finding me after pregnant with his child
Passing me by with a wave as he smiled
I ran from the shame I held for so long
He caught me and I fought to stay strong
But it was too late.. My life was already gone
My body lay lifeless on his lawn

He buried me underneath the depths of hell
My mouth now shut my secret I could never tell
He impregnated me and killed me to hide
His secret in my grave never to have died

Great poem describing the trauma of rape and the consequences to the victim, but let me tell you, by writing it you are freeing the victim of the grip of the perpetrator of such abuse. Emptying out the garbage and closing the door on it. We must try not allow such abuses to hold us back from enjoying our lives to the absolute fullest or the rape goes on! Well deserved editors choice indeed. Smiling at you, Tai

This such a powerful write, it penetrates the psyche of the perpetrator so well, and describes the suffering of the victim with so much compassion and depth of feeling... a rare psychological insight!
