"All that's left of me is You." Those 7 little syllables speak volumes.

This poem is beautiful. Even though the meter is irregular, it worked for me with the topic. Your word choices were superb, and the emotion of this heart's prayer were very evident. Fine piece of writing; thank you.

This describes so well the feelings of the child that has been violated and left to blame self for the one time or continual abuse. You captured well the shame, the need to be silent, the escape into self-destructive habits or addictions. Thank you for pointing to the hope and freedom in Christ.
One of my favorite lines: "For only by Jesus will my joy be set free and only by Jesus will my joy be sustained!"
Victims of sexual abuse need the wisdom and hope of this poem!
Thank you for broaching a difficult topic.
Such an honest portrayal of the grief of being victimized. Thank Goodness for the Light of our Creator who can bring us to Victory through those tunnels of darkness.
