Consent was trivial to you,
you thought, my flesh was ready for you.
you thought, me being friendly,
an invitation for you to violate me.
I was afraid, of the consequences,
you were groping your next prey.
I was afraid , of myself,
empty void nesting inside me.
I contemplate, did I do something wrong?
or was it you all alone,
the answer is obvious, yet
I scrutinise myself to sleep every night.
The wounds may heal,
but the trust is lost,
the shadows will scare me,
for the rest of my life.
I have decided to,
deem you insignificant,
at long last the woman in me rebelled,
overcoming the fear and shame.
I will speak out,
not in a whisper, but aloud,
vehemently, to end this injustice,
to end this torment within.
More Power to the survivors, fighting out there.
Thankyou for reading.
