Abuse Poem

Bound To a Bed

I'm a 17 year old girl. I was molested when I was five years old by a girl who was nine years old. She molested me every time I saw her and I was too stupid to say no.

Bound to a bed by a cold shadow
Afraid to move
Crying out for help
Screaming "please don't"
The pain pierced me skin

My childhood left behind in a bed
Crying out for help but nobody listens
Scared to sleep in a bed
Scared of the shadow hiding under my bed waiting to take me away
Scared to be alone
Please help me!!

    Wow this sounds a lot like me when i was 5. My brother who was 11 started to rape me. I have never told anyone afraid of the trouble I would cause. I thought it was something that I was just going to have to endure. You're not the only one who didn't know to say no.
