You Left Me Alone

By Damien Knight

(I don’t normally do trigger warnings or explain my poems but if rape and child abuse is a trigger for you don’t read. )

Young, naïve, foolish
A child through and through.
I trusted everything you’d do,
You left me alone with him.

You held me, loved me
Then locked me away.
Shutting out the day,
You left me alone with him.

You drank until thoughtless.
I was just a babe,
It didn’t stop the rape.
You left me alone with him!
