I was raped a year ago when I was 17 turning 18. I did tell people I trusted, but I still wish I had the courage to tell my mom. To think that I was raped at the tavern just make me shiver...

Rape

I remember each second of that night.
Each time I try to forget the pain and memory of that time, it is still there.
I remember when you got on top of me and held me down and even though I screamed for help, nobody came.
Now I live with it each day of my life.
I try to remember it was not my fault, but still deep inside I think it was.
How could you take something from me that was not yours to take?
How could you sleep at night knowing that I can't?
How could you have raped me and pretend you never did?
How can I cope with it when I know I can't?

I was raped a year ago when I was 17 turning 18. I did tell people I trusted, but I still wish I had the courage to tell my mom. To think that I was raped at the tavern just make me shiver that my family will freak out after hearing this. I wish to break my silence, but I think people will judge me for being such a reckless teenager. I tried to forget about all this hell I've been through. But since this year I'm living alone, I have all the time in the world to have flashback memories. I cry myself to sleep every night.

I was raped from the age 5 until 12 days before I turned 14 by my so called brother. Here is my poem.

INNOCENCE

The man that brought the pain
goes on the same as if no shame
now how do I lose the pain?

Every man I see I think of he
living with fear is not a cheer
why didn't anyone hear
me cry out with fear.

sleeping at night is always a battle
cause the man that made me shallow
why did he have to be so hollow.

his heat was black as coal
so he stole my soul
the pain I hold is oh so cold
why couldn't I told

so all I did was mold
and now my heart is cold
I hate the man that stole
my innocence from my soul

I have a big sister who is * years older than me. she went through a really rough patch when she was 18. she went off the deep end with drinking of hard liquor and parties galore. I just couldn't understand. a couple months ago I found out she had been raped those 4 years ago. and it explained sooo much. and now that I know what is bothering her and why she hates being hugged or showing her emotions. I don't know if I should tell her that I know or if it's better to not. I know that I can help her, but I.....don't know if its the right time to say anything, I just need some help.
