He put his hands where they did not belong.
The flowers in her ribcage died that day.
He ripped the smile off of her face that night.
She forget to sew it back on.
He stared her down the next day at school.
She was scared to talk in class.
He followed her home from school.
She promised she wouldn’t tell.
He was a ‘good guy’ so his actions went unnoticed.
She cried herself to sleep for the next three weeks.
He had a future that wouldn’t dismiss his actions.
She was scared to say no to a question.
He smirked each time they crossed paths.
She avoided all eye contact.
He had a nice laugh over it. He’s still laughing.
Her heart is now a graveyard where she buried her trust in men.
