The Silent Fire

by sportytrackgirl

I smoke a little something
I start to feel a numbing
And I'm becoming

A little impaired
A little scared
And unprepared

His fingers running along my leg
I feel like I drank a keg
Inside I beg

For him to not
Because I cannot
I feel so hot,

Nervous inside
Because I once implied
Even though this time I denied

But he's taking advantage
He has the vantage
And I can no longer manage

I thought you appreciated me
That you were my ami
Its uncanny

I needed you
And maybe also a tissue
Just someone to rescue

Me from the universe
I feel like my life's a curse
And now I feel worse

Cause you can't restrain
I let you take my pain
And turn me insane

I feel stiff
From your kiss
I fell off a cliff

The cliff of life
Nothing can make me suffice
Like I rolled tricked dice

This is about a rape I experienced from my best guy friend. I drank some vodka and smoked a little too much of what he said was k2 (legal pot) but I'm pretty sure it wasn't. Just an update since I wrote it; I'm in counseling and dealing with it well.

a powerful insight into rape and the feelings it leaves the with the victim. I'm sorry this happened to you and hope one day you will feel whole again.
