Silent Rape

A butterfly is drawn to 
a captivating flower,
Then taking its nectar
and leaving it be,
but what if the flower
Wished to keep its nectar?
What if this flower wished to remain untouched by the greedy butterfly?
The beauty of this flower
was too much for the butterfly,
and it took without asking.
The flower didn't bother to question it
because staying mute seems easier.
So the flower stood still
Quiet and alone. 
Author's Notes/Comments: 

dedicated to those who have gone through it and for them to know they're not alone.
