Sometimes distance is needed to see things clearly

How could you? How could you take advantage of my body the way you did?

My lifeless body bouncing from dream to reality; you gave me glimpses of hell every time I came to.

You made me hate my body

You made me want to punish myself for what you had done.

I have not told one soul the full truth of what you did to me; I am ashamed

I am ashamed of what you did to me

I’m afraid those truths will never be spoken, the details of my violation leaving me with a burden of a secret I never asked for.

My body will never feel the same. I will never be the same since you touched me.

You violated not only my body but my mind, too.

I will never forget what you did and that is the worst part of it all, reliving it every time it gets too quiet.

I keep myself busy so I don’t have to think about it, about what you did to me

But there are always quiet moments when your actions come back to haunt me.

You violated me and now I hate myself

You took my consent

My dignity

My peace of mind

My self-respect.

You violated me and I will never be able to forget that.
