How Could You?

How could you do this, do this to  me?
I was only 14 when you raped me.
I have flashbacks from all the pain that you caused.
It plays in my mind. Stop, rewind, and then pause.
I remember your touch was so cold,
How you pushed me down and ripped off all of my clothes.
You did it harder and harder; you would not stop.
I was lying in bed crying no; I said, "No, please stop."
That night I thought my voice was not heard.
I was a victim, I was scared, I couldn't say a word.
Your touch, your feel, the pain is real.
I feel like a sad little girl
In a big cold and lonely world.
I'm 18 now and the pain is still with in me.
You're a rapist and my worst enemy.
How could you do something so evil?
You're a monster, a rapist, you're evil.
You will never understand all the damage you did,
The feelings, the pain, and the hurt that I feel.
You raped me, and my pain is real.
I wonder if I will overcome it and heal.
I was raped and I will learn how to deal.
I was raped because I did not consent to that deal.
You forced me and went against my will,
But I'll learn how to deal.
I can say I was raped and my body healed.
Even though I'm sad, I've learned to overcome it and deal.

I don't have a story to relate - I just want you to know there are many, many males out here who are ashamed by what others of their gender do to women. What pleasure could someone gain from subjecting another person to unspeakable terror, physical and mental pain? I hope one day your mental hurt will be healed by a loving gentle soul.

What you put is sincere. I was molested by my older half-brother. He was 13 and I was 6. I still am traumatized from it. I blame myself for it happening. It has caused me to be damaged. I told my dad, he was the only one who believed me. My own mother that I was so close to didn't believe me and said that it was just my dad lying and that I was lying. I still think about what happen to me every day. I blame myself every day. It was my fault and I know it now.
