He cracked his whip
the sound still drilled in my head
he forced me to strip
i was wishing i was dead

i cried as hard as i could
screamed out for help
but he said everything was good
and told me not to yelp

he said he would kill me
if i ever told
i wish i could see
how much i was controlled

it haunts me inside
most days and almost every night
i wish i could feel pride
but my confidence was left to ignite

The author's comments:
I am constantly haunted by some of the things that people have done to me and i wanted to write out how i felt. i hope that people reading this that have had some of the same experiences can see that they are not alone.
