Ode to a Paedo

You said you were the man,
The only man I could trust.

Then touched my young breasts,
while denying your lust.

So the game was on,
you’d screwed with my head.

Copped a feel every day,
while I lay in my bed.

‘He’s just clumsy’ I thought,
so brainwashed was I.

Wrapped my arms cross my chest,
and turned on my side.

My defenses worked,
I kept my breasts safe.

So you switched up your plan,
slapped my butt all apace.

He said I could trust him,
that he’d never do wrong.

But that was a lie,
I trusted too long.

I trusted all men,
and all ‘clumsy’ oafs.

Who groped me and hurt me.
‘accidentally’ I supposed.

Now I look at his face,
in old family photos.

It makes my skin crawl,
his eyes, his soul gross.

How does he live,
the devilish churl?

For he groomed and he groped
a sweet innocent girl.

Ivy Blonwyn is a Welsh freelance writer and photographer. She and her husband have been trying, unsuccessfully, to start a family for several years. Ivy can relate to the pain, confusion, jealousy and sense of injustice that accompanies infertility. But she also knows the pain of being a step-mother to children who’s vindictive birth mother has systematically employed Parental Alienation to distance them from their birth-father, Ivy’s husband, Rhys. Her articles, often illustrated with her photos, are intended to validate and comfort those who suffer from infertility, Parental Alienation and the pain of sexual abuse. She finds solace in indulging her passion for plein air photography during long tramps with her husband through the fields, hills and castles of Cardiff.
