Poems about Rape by Survivors

Of all crimes committed against a person, rape is the one that leaves a person feeling the most violated. A rape victim is often left with the feeling that a part of them has been torn apart. Because the feeling is still with them, the victim may have a sense that the crime is continuously occurring. To use another person's body and ignore the soul the resides within is the most egregious crime that one person can commit against another. Rape victims should get help from a professional to enable them to move on with their life.

19 Poems about Rape by Victims of Rape and Sexual Assault

  1. 1. Black Bird

    • By Laura C. Lords
    •  Published by Family Friend Poems October 2018

    This is my story, about what happened to me when I was 12. The point was to get people to feel, and understand something that not everyone understands. For those who haven't experienced this, I hope it helps you understand and connect with people who have.

  2. 2. Change What Is To Come

    I am a very introverted person, but when I start to write, nothing stands in the way. This is about a fourth of the full poem, so it's just a glimpse to fit into the limit.

    It's strange how a few short seconds can lead you in a whole new direction,
    It alters how you think and act and see your own reflection.
    From a single moment on, my life was forever changed,
    Like everything I previously knew had suddenly been rearranged.

  3. 3. Church Service

    • By Makeitcount
    •  Published by Family Friend Poems August 2018

    I was sexual assaulted by my step-father from the age 6 till 12. After that I went into foster care. My mom died when I was 10 and we couldn't live together anymore (including my brother) and they were suspecting something too.. It mostly happened every Sunday since that was always the day that we had to come into the bed of my parents to talk about our problems. Only it happened quite different after my mom passed.

    It was like a church service
    my body was the church
    and with all your sins
    you came in me

  4. 4. Forever Changed

    • By Danielle
    •  Published by Family Friend Poems April 2009

    This is a story of what happened to me. Ever since I started writing about it, things have gotten a lot easier and are much more clear to see. Still, because of this, I have been forever changed.

    I heard the footsteps coming and I knew this would be another long night,
    And something inside me screamed this time it really isn't right.
    The words he was saying were ruthless and cruel,
    And each time he hit me, I sat there and obeyed each and every rule.

  5. 5. My Virginity

    • By Skinny_Cow
    •  Published by Family Friend Poems December 2018

    It has been 13 years, and the only way I can talk about it is through poetry.

    I think back to when it happened,
    think back to that awful day.
    The day when it all happened,
    the day he took "it" away.

  6. 6. The Help That Never Came

    • By K.R.
    •  Published by Family Friend Poems February 2014

    I was playing with my best friend. We always made up games to go in the woods. I had always found it peaceful there, and my mother never minded it. She had a fence around that boundary line, and on one particular day, my friend said we should run past it, deep into the woods, where we had never been before. I didn't know better, only being ten, followed him deep in there. It had just rained, so it was muddy. When we were far enough, to where my parents couldn't hear me, he had his way with me.

    The game that started out fun
    Turned drastically to fear.
    The woods,
    Best place to hide in the game,

  7. 7. Toy Shed Nightmare

    • By Ally
    •  Published by Family Friend Poems February 2009

    This poem is a reflection of my past. It is a true story that happened to me as a child. I will never forget this and I hope you won't either, because it is to help and to prevent this from happening to others.

    I still remember the dark dirty floor
    of the toy shed in the backyard.
    The pain as every piece of clothing I had on
    was getting torn off in fast motions.

  8. 8. How Could You?

    • By Cobi
    •  Published by Family Friend Poems December 2016

    A teenager recalls the pain that has stayed with her after being raped.

    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.

  9. 9. Masked Without A Voice

    • By Serena
    •  Published by Family Friend Poems July 2012

    This is an introduction poem to the abuse I lived with for many years.

    The truth I hold, took years to unfold, locked up and never told.
    Now I speak, for I am done being weak.
    A story I will tell, awakening the pits of hell.
    Pinned against the wall, being six a little small.

  10. 10. It's Okay Because At Least I'm Not Like You

    • By Mistakesimake
    •  Published by Family Friend Poems March 2009

    This is a poem I decided to write about my experience with rape and how I realized that he wasn't worth my tears although I'd be lying if I didn't get upset every now and then over it. I mean, I did look up to the man as an uncle or something similar to that, so I hope it helps some people (even though I don't see how) to accept what can't be done and accept the fact that don't worry he'll get his in the end.

    You're nothing but a dirty old man
    But I knew it was some sort of elaborate plan
    It's okay, but let me ask, did I fulfill your needs
    Sure it doesn't matter that you made me bleed

  11. 11. I Just Write

    • By Latesha
    •  Published by Family Friend Poems May 2011

    I was sexual abused by my uncle, stepfather, and my aunt's boyfriend when I was growing up. This poem is talking about how writing basically got me through my situation. I always say that when I feel like no one understands, or like I'm not being heard when I try to speak, I just write because my paper and pen understands me.

    I can't talk to anybody,
    I feel like nobody understands,
    So I pick up some paper and grab me a pen.
    You see me smile, but if you only knew

    •  Published by Family Friend Poems April 2009

    This was the worst thing that had ever happened to me in my life. I think the worst thing about it was that it was a relation who was responsible for this. I felt I needed to let go of the feelings that were deep inside of me, so I thought the best way to let go was to put pen to paper. This is what I got..

    My Grandfather tried to rape me from the age of 12-15, I finally told a family member and he ran away. No one has seen him since. This poem kind of got me through it.

    In my life you're the one thing I fear,
    And before you die, this you must hear.
    Every day we were out to play,
    we'd laugh and joke, and together we'd stay.
