A Little Soul Was Taken (May Trigger)

This is a poem I wrote a few years ago that I got the urge to share.


In the corner of a dark room
a little girl stares,
trying to be quiet 
knowing no one cares.

Her belly growling loudly, 
her arm in a sling
bruises on her body
no one knows a thing.
Her mother is too high,
teachers do not know 
about the abuse she has suffered 
since she was 4 years old.

She hears the footsteps coming
she gets as small as she can
she has to hide from the one
that her mother calls her man. 

She knows what is coming
as he opens up her door
He calls out her name
and she curls up on the floor.
"Lord", she mouths "Please help me. 
Take me away from this place.
Please don't let him hurt me
Don't let me see his face" 

She figured the prayer unanswered,
because he sees her on the floor.
Red faced and angry
he shuts the bedroom door.

"You little bitch" he growled
"You trying to hide from me?"
She shrank down even further
knowing not to flee.
She closed her eyes tightly 
not feeling any pain
for she had left her body
as she does time and again.

He kicked her and he threw her
across the room into bed
he grabbed her by her shirt
lifting it over her head.

Pulling down her pants
cursing the whole time
the little girl isn't with him 
inside her head she is fine.
When the man was finished
he asked "how was that for you?"
the little girl didn't answer
she'll be gone 'til he is through. 

No answer made him angry
and he cursed and punched her chest
no chance to get some air
her lungs became compressed.

An answer to her prayer
as oxygen ebbs away
she is slowly dying
but not to her dismay.
He walks out of the bedroom 
not knowing what he's done. 
A collapse of the girl's lungs,
her chances down to none.

Never regaining counsciousness
she stayed within her safe place
no caring parent to see
her slack and ashen face.

A few hours later
she had gone away
innocent for eternity
no suffering another day.
Three whole days went by
before her body was found
her teacher reported her missing
no idea she was heaven bound. 

The cops went to her room
and found her body broken
a smile frozen on her face
last words never spoken.

On that day it made the news
a 6 year old was gone
a lonely victim of abuse
no longer her abuser's pawn.
An upstanding member of society
the abuser was believed
when he claimed no knowledge.
Everyone was deceived.

So there was no justice,
the abuser was not to blame.
A little soul was taken
A girl who died in vain.

 LMAO she copied and pasted it from a site she stole it off of. She didn't even have enough sense to change the format.

yeah, no. If you look at the bottom of the poem, it says it was written by Blair Witch (it's actually blair_witch) which is my handle on gotpoetry.com. Look it up.
