Thief of Her Innocence

She was such a beautiful soul
I see now the shadows of a little girl lost reflected in her eyes
The pain you have caused her, the guilt
More guilt than any one person should ever have to carry

You reached into her innermost core and stole something that was not yours to take
Something so sacred, and guarded
The innocence of a child, a three year old
She gave you such cherished love and trust, so freely

My sweet, innocent child
And you took her away from me
She is no longer my little girl, she has become a stranger to me
A vastly different child, lost to me

Like a finger that touches water, causing a ripple
When you touched her you created waves
She becomes angrier, more explosive
Pulling away from me, distancing herself evermore

No longer able to trust
No longer able to sleep
No longer able to just be
No longer able to find relief

Do you realize, do you see…
The damage you have done to her and me?
When I look into her beautiful blue eyes, the eyes that you gave her
I no longer see that sparkle in them that once was

We move through the motions of life
And Lord knows when I’m down on my knees
In my deepest despair and darkest days
When my blood boils at the mention of your name

I just want to scream

How can you look at your own reflection?
How can you live with yourself?
I can not say that I wouldn’t hurt you if given the chance
I can never forgive you

You were supposed to ber her daddy
For all the world I will NEVER understand the how or the why
But instead, each day I move forward knowing that I hate you
Me, who hates no one…hates you more than anything in this entire world
