She sat alone in her house
Afraid to go outside
She sat alone day after day
Alone inside and cried.

The heartache that lingered on
Plagued her with guilt and shame
The finger pointing, the cruel, cold stares
They said she was to blame.

So desolate and isolating
She never would fight back
Refused to stand up for herself
Against their bold attack.

Relentless and unforgiving
They refused to see her side
The truth was never to be known
All that prevailed were lies.

All the cheating and the lying
Was everywhere she turned
Their status and their power
Was taken…. never earned.

Picture perfect memories
Frozen in the past
Cherished in her scrapbook
Never meant to last.
