This time I tried to tell them,
I let fear sink herself deep in the oceans of my bowel,
Whispering the loudest scream for help,
I tried to tell them he was capable of anything,
I knew how good he was at taking what wasn’t given,
He had done it before.
I coerced myself into thinking it was a mistake,
a mistake that wears a white garment and haunts me,
My heart beats distortedly out of fear,
I was free of him but we were unfinished,
I tried to make them see beneath the charade,
Beneath the happy masks,
they didn’t.
They couldn’t,
They called me dramatic,
Now it’s happened again,
My soul violated without consent,
This is my house,
Yet it’s the least safest place I know,
You take and take,
This time I beg you to take it all,
Take my life.
For they won’t believe me,
They’ll say I’m too strong for that to have happened,
They’ll twist my perception of it all,
Deep within it will haunt me,
For every time my eyes open,memories will devour me,
The shame will necrotize me,
The sun would never rise again,
I desire not to be a living dead,
So you win,
Just take it all.
