    Innocence Lost

    innocence Lost
    In the wake of childhood abuse
    She lost part of herself
    She cannot remember how to connect
    She's learned to hide so well

    They told her she was worthless
    And used her like a toy
    Because in the darkness of her room
    Daddy is not a good boy

    So she learns to separate herself
    She cannot hope to survive the pain
    She gets lost in her minds eye
    Another victim there to darkness reign

    And even though she passed the trial
    And found justice in the end
    Sometimes just the slightest word
    Will find her in that darkness again

    Forgive while she tries to learn
    How to trust beyond the tears
    How to believe in anything
    Or know that love still cares

    But don't weep for her my love
    In tempering she grew strong
    And found a voice that was all her own
    To carry her dreams along

    Now she works towards an open mind
    And a chance for a true heart
    A gentle soul to hold her close
    To fill the empty parts

    And she believes someday
    Another will hold her ever so tight
    The darkness will no longer hold sway
    And she will find peace tonight...JK

    How do you explain to someone that your history of abuse makes it easy to cut off a toxic relationship?
