Characterized by a glistening tear,
a girl sits alone trembling with fear.
She hears the shouts and screams,
and cannot escape, even in dreams.

She knows it is coming and she quakes
as her little hands uncontrollably shake.
She cannot run, nor can she hide,
from this emotional and physical roller coaster ride.

At last it comes, swiftly and sure,
and fills her with pain so pure
that she cannot even stop to yelp
or think about getting help.

A downward motion is all she sees
before her senses all freeze.
Blackness fills her very mind;
she is unconcious one more time.
