Not my fault
Idontknow014

Rape is never your fault. It took me 9 years to realise that .

No!
 1
No this can't be happening
 2
It was just having a few joints
 3
In a car
 4
With a boy i hardly knew
 5
Oh God what did i do!?
 6
 
 
His hand on my lap
 7
I didn't push it away
 8
He lent in for a kiss
 9
It's my fault
 10
I kissed him back
 11
Things got heavy
 12
Ow! Okay I don't like this
 13
I push him away politely
 14
That's when he came in for more
 15
I said no but he persisted
 16
In a panic i went for the door
 17
No. This must be a dream
 18
Everything going in slow motion
 19
To hard for me to reach
 20
No. It's not a dream
 21
It's his strength binding my arms to my side
 22
I know there's no way out
 23
No-one for me to shout
 24
I accept my fate and let it happen
 25
A dirty slut that's all I'm known for
 26
 
 
Forever his name branded on my body
 27
Forever showering, scolding hot water
 28
It was years later dealing with the heartaches
 29
I realise it wasn't me
 30
You're the one to blame alex

 — Qayyum

yeah, this is pretty heavy. Rather than rate, I'll just say uber-respect for getting this into the world, and say you picked you some good ppl to share with. I'm very sorry this happened
