Y is for Youthless

An attempt to produce a poem or story from now until the end of April (except Sundays).
The theme for the 2022 A to Z Challenge is the human condition.

Hello, Mr Small, was that your name?
I guess it doesn’t really matter
Because that’s how I remember you
As the man who damaged me
The man who stole my childhood
Some things are hard to forget
Some things are hard to forgive
How could I?
How could you?

I’ve always been fascinated with the stealing of innocence: It’s the most heinous crime, and certainly a capital crime if there ever was one.
