(Dedicated to all rape victims)
He was there standing before me
In my hand was an apple and cup of tea
He took those from me and edge a little close
I smiled and took it as a friendly dose
But then he took my hands in his
And forced me into a heartless kiss
Shocked and startled I pulled away
Only to realize I was trapped in everyway
He stepped closer, murder in his eyes
I tried to escape in spite of useless tries
But I was his prey, bound to be caught
Even then for my modesty I fought
He touched me and held me hard and wrong
I tried to scream loud and long
For someone to help and someone to come
But he covered my mouth to keep me mum
Where he touched I felt myself burn with fire
But even then he did not tire
He ripped and wrecked and hurt my soul
Eager to achieve his evil goal
At last he got up and gave a grin
He kicked my body escatic on his win
And I lay there low a while after he went
Not crying, not speaking not knowing what this meant
Is this the punishment for being a female?
Are we so low to shrink before a male?
Was there no respect for us at all?
Was there no one to help me after this fall?
All my happiness and pride, was it all gone?
Or would I be able to forget and move on?
Those horrible images still etched in my mind
Yet the answers to these questions I wanted to find
And prove to myself and others suffering this way
That a rapist could never escape and get away...
