In my last post I mentioned that I would be having several individuals that I know write something about their experience being sexually assaulted. Whether that be their story, something they wish individuals that haven’t been assaulted would know, or anything else that may help other people truly understand sexual assault. Over the next month or so, I plan on having a Guest post every other week.
Some of these individuals have chosen to stay anonymous.
Today, the first individual to share their story, I haven’t known for a very long time. However, this poem shows you just how strong and resilient this individual is.
“i still feel your hands around my neck i still feel you pin me to the bed,
whispering in my ear that you love me but darling,
that is not love all you wanted was to take the one thing i had never given to anyone else
to be in control as i cried out in pain,
begging for you to stop you gripped my wrists tighter saying that it’s not over yet
i eventually let my head fall forward silent tears dripping down my face,
onto the bedsheets by the time it was over i couldn’t feel much of anything
except for the blood dripping down my legs you wiped the tears away from my face and
kissed my cheek saying “i love you” i put an aching smile on my face
and replied “i love you too”.”
If you or someone you know would like to share their story or something about their experience of any kind of sexual assault, feel free to email me at firstname.lastname@example.org or send me a private message on one of my Social Media accounts.
