why, oh why...












why do you continue
to look at me that way
and touch me that way

i am no match for you
who have the powers that be
on your side

so i am begging you
please, don't hurt me
anymore

i am only a child.

that is such a poignant post - especially after the news i have just heard on the local news of a woman (i cannot say it is a mother) sexually abusing her seven hyear old son - and eventually killing him. why do such people exist?! it is sickening.
