By totallyalone

You were my best friend, my partner in crime,
But all of that can change in one short time.
You took my trust, and threw it away,
I'm not even sure how I'll get through the day.
My bodily injuries no where near as bad,
As the emotional trauma that you'd never had.
You think because you feel remorse and guilt,
That it's enough for these feelings to wilt.
You did the unspeakable, a crime of rape,
And for me, it's on repeat, like a broken tape.
What you don't understand is that I'm shattered,
Ruined by one of the only people who ever mattered.

    I'm sorry there isn't an answer inside, yet still carry on with strengthening stride. We are but vessels for a short time, others can use or repair these broken ships but in the end we are the ones setting the course, how diligent we are in the adventure can only make the journey better. Stay strong friend, you're beautiful.

    Tough to read. This is a situation I would wish no one would ever have to endure and it's crushing to know that it happens. Thank you for sharing your pain.

    The pain has helped shape me into who I am today, and I've learned that sharing it can help others know they're not alone, which is life-saving in itself at times. Thanks for reading and commenting!
