To My Perpetrator

Can you see me?
I am right here
Before you.
(Inside you).
I have not
Really changed.
Except maybe a little
On the outside.
I am still
That little girl
Whose trust
You took away
So you might have
Some pleasure-day
And play
With her
Mind and Body
In Secret.
‘No One Should
Ever Know.’
You would
Always say.
I thought it
Strange that way.
You’d say,
‘Everyone can play
That way,
But only special
Little girls could
Ever get to play
The way
YOU PLAY.’
