You saw my struggle, felt how I tried to retrieve
I drank too much, could barely hold on my feet
I whispered no, when you grabbed me
In heat ripped of my dress
I just bought it last week, then you kissed my chest
Please stop, no please. And naked you were
So young and pretty, my rapist in a blur
Please don't hate me... but...but I said no!
I thought we could make love a few hours ago.
Stabbing throb, you're on your way
To come, to burst, humiliate.
Is this what you are a rapist by name-
Or a dumb boy just playing a game?
It might have been whispered, but still a no
I pretended to sleep, so you might let go.
My body's a temple, mutiny its prayer
I died there, bit by bit, layer by layer.
I find it hard to talk, my throat, it strikes
When I think of one among a thousand nights.
Today I'd scream, I'd kick my way out
Back then I was young, didn't know what it is about
That no one is just desire and lust and heat
That respecting yourself is respecting me.
One syllable, you make your choice
Love your life and use your voice.
