Just a spike back,
As if it happened today,
Be hush!
Don't scream,
He said to her.

Uncle please!
She yearned just for his Mercy,
A slap she received,
Even while innocent.

Weakened she became,
All because of her illness,
Yet she pleaded!
She struggled so hard to come out of it,
Unfortunately he won over her,
He stroked in!

With her mouth covered,
She screamed in silence!
Hot tears ceaselessly rushed down her cheeks.

Her body got paralyzed!
Her faded eyes gazed upon the sky,
Just for help!
Yet it was far from her.

You are Sweet He said,
Not sweet sixteen,
But of Thirteen!
Yea you heard me right,
She was still a girl child.

Don't tell anyone,
For if you try to do so,
You surely know what I will do,
I'll surely turn the tables around,
They will all be against you!
Even if you tell them,
Who would believe you?!

Forever Be hush!
He smirked,
Before he left,
While Lily was in a Mess!

When someone reads your work
And responds, please be courteous
And reply in kind, thanks.

what you mean with a [spike] back, but I am going to assume that
it means a short while ago?

A few things that may make this a bit smoother:

1] Be [quiet] or [Hush up]

2] She [pleaded] for mercy

3] She [was] innocent

4] she was weakened by illness

5] Yet even as she plead and struggled

6] Unfortunately he won

7] Hot tears ran down her cheeks

8] Her body was paralyzed

9] Her eyes gazed upon the sky

10] And help was far away

11] Be silent forever

It is a terrible thing to happen to any woman, let alone a 13 year old!
Your title could be changed to Be Forever Silent, but as it is, is says
what needs to be said. The pace was fast as the actions described were.
The ending left no doubt that it was a tragic occurrence. This piece, while
it is a tragedy, is one that puts the blame squarely where it belongs.
Nicely done! ~ Geezer.

It seems that the days and hours that people
are available for chatroom are staggered and
not a good match for most everyone. How about
if everyone just shows up at the door, whenever
they have a few free minutes?

Rape and it's psychological effect on the girl has perpetually left an indelible mark in her heart. Some men are prone to rape and mostly the girl child suffers this dilemma alone without any coming to their aid. Especially when the culprit forewarned not to expose it.
