Pale and Stunted

i am the result of love
that’s what most of you can say
but not me
i am the result of malice
a violent act, of fear and terror
a weakness so crushing
that sense and kindness were abolished
physical strength overpowering
knees buckling, the deepest
most singular, personal invasion
that little fleshy lever
moved her world in a bad bad way
planted a seed, watered with shame
kept in darkness and secrecy
it grew just the same
