For anyone who has survived rape and has to live with its consequences and for my friend, who was drugged and raped and is surviving.

I want the clock here in my hand and so turn back the time
when none spoke up for common sense or saw what he had planned.
You've still a friend in Innocence, though She seems left behind.
Will tears of shame fall to the floor, to stain your life forever more?
Your hope, your light, remembers yet, no matter how you try:
there is relief but no forget, nor answers to your why.

We hold our lives in balance but judge with misled hearts
yet aren't we greater than the sum of all those parts?
Don't let black holes of memory devour what's good in you,
Nor silent tongues condemn, when all you've said is true.
Come take my hand - I know you! I'll share your darkest night:
Lets wish away your nightmares, for in you still, there's light.
