What It Ment To Be Raped.

What does it mean to be raped?
Forcible entry.
Force to do it even when you say no.
The power of ones force against you.

What does it mean to be raped?
No charges brought foward.
Old bruises fading.
Emotional scars still stay.
Only have misery and pain.

What does it mean to be raped?
The fear the loneliness.
The sense of being on your own.
The fear of speaking out.
The shit it does to your head.

What does it mean to be raped?
To be forced to have sex when you say no.
To be torn inside.
Saying no he whispers But I love you.

What does it mean to be raped?
No proof.
Hurt and anger.
Words left unspoken.
Nothing said for years.

It means feeling dirty the rest of your life, and the dirt doesn't wash off. What does it mean to be raped? It means nightmares, flashbacks, shivers up and down your back, his voice always in your head. What does it mean to be raped? Stolen security, not knowing who to trust, looking suspiciously at every guy thinking, 'is he going to rape me today? ' What does it mean to be raped? Uncontrollable emotional outbursts, panic attacks, crying because you no longer look at men the same way that you used to. Being raped means all of this and more. Reading this amy, brought back my own horrific memories of my forceable rapes by both boys in my teens, and men afterwards. I can't trust men, and that is why after my transsexual surgeries are completed I will be lesbian, because at least I can still trust women.
