'The action of violating an item
or a person
or a place'
a breach
an invasion
an infringement or infraction
an intrusion 
a break in
a forced entry into a private space
a violation of something private
somewhere they shouldn't be
somewhere personal
cared for
worked hard for
a place where we once felt safe
treated with irreverence 
stripped of its trust and security
defiled and desecrated 
not the items taken
the trinkets and mementos 
not that which is tangible 
that which is within
the memories defiled 
the feeling of safety 
the loss of that feeling that this is our fortress
our castle
our safe place to be 
a place where we can be us
our own space...
now gone
