Self-culpability for this unforgettable deed,
Safeguarding should have been heeded,
An immediate life change, from this cowardly act proceeds.
Shelter sentiments, fright inside to keep.
An encounter with a friend who suffers the same hurt,
Heeding her tribulations, tear from her eyes spurt.
She says, pretense of dry eyes is becoming her forte,
Memories of this experience can no longer be cache.
Continuation will lead to an internal demise of this soul.
Imparting her experiences with a friend, relieved to hoist this load,
Therapeutic process to remove self-culpability.
A moment of forced sex, she was a casualty.
Healing process to create a better soul.
The horrific memories with this coward, they will no longer hold.
