My Light

You took my light
my burning flame
ripped it from my soul
leaving my heart beating
but no longer breathing.

You took my light
of my dancing soul
leaving it beating
but no longer needing.

you took my light
my flame, my warmth
leaving me cold
a dimness in the night.

You took my light
my nature, my will
tearing me to pieces
leaving a life still standing
but no longer wanting.

You took my light
my every desire, my innocence
leaving a shell
a person no longer.


  1. not much left once the light has been taken...and rather cold....

  2. leaving a shell, a person no longer...a dark,cold place to be...hugs my friend

  3. A great description of child abuse and how deep it goes.
