The Priceless Gift... Taken

by Katrina (age 15?)

Wanting to figure out how someone's innocence
Can be taken away in a single night.
The respect one once had deteriorated right
Before their eyes.
An everlasting mistake,
No way of being undone.
Before, during, after,
No love or compassion was present.
Not a gift given,
But a gift taken away.
Never going back.
Never changing what's been done.
Hope and purity gone.
Guilt and remorse still linger.
A prized possession gone forever.
Never willing to let it go.
Yet it's gone,
Gone for good.
Unchangeable.
Priceless.
My virginity.
