The Devil's Gaze.




What a betrayal

Sexual, violent abuser;

What harm to cause.


Loud remonstrations

To swear ones innocence.

Adds to the horror.


Quietly plots vengence

To harm victim further:

The sick game they play.


One's trust duped.

Everything so bewildering

And also so worrying.


To take innocence

And make shame and guilt

Pretence - you cheated.


Are the abused the fools

Or the foolhardy attacker?

Reckless attacker beware! 


Author's Notes/Comments: 



My disgust at the sexual and violent crimes committed against youngsters, it is such a betrayal of them.
