Scarlet Red

Do not ask me what I was wearing

My denim shorts were not an invitation

Do not ask me what I was wearing

My floral blouse did not have "YES" written on it

Do not ask me what I was weaing

My makeup was not significant

 

Do not ask me what I was wearing

Would it have made a difference if I had worn a dress?

if I had worn heels?

if I had worn scarlet red lipstick?

Why does it matter what I was wearing?

 

Do not ask me what I was wearing

My clothes did not rape me

My shoes did not rape me

My makeup did not rape me

Do not ask me what I was wearing

 

HE raped me
