    Didn’t you see the tears on my face
    When you reached out to me,
    Plucked the petals that clothed me
    Then lay me bare to the world?

    But then those soon dried,
    Dust sticking to the stains that remained
    When you cast my body upon the ground.

    Didn’t you hear my screams
    When the monsters you invited
    Groped and grabbed at me,
    While others stared from the back?

    I soon grew silent when I realised
    That no one would come to save me
    So I tried to lie still and pray for a quick end.

    Didn’t you know you hurt me more
    With your inaction rather than your actions?
    I don’t cry, I won’t scream, I can’t move

    I close my eyes and wait for silence.
    The stillness finally comes when you and yours
    Decide that I’ve learnt your lesson,
    One that leaves me torn, inside and out.
