What It Ment To Be Raped.

What does it mean to be raped?
Forcible entry.
Force to do it even when you say no.
The power of ones force against you.

What does it mean to be raped?
No charges brought foward.
Old bruises fading.
Emotional scars still stay.
Only have misery and pain.

This is such an horrific poem, that anyone who has been raped knows everything you have written here. What does it mean to be raped? It means feeling dirty the rest of your life, and the dirt doesn't wash off. What does it mean to be raped? It means nightmares, flashbacks, shivers up and down your back, his voice always in your head. What does it mean to be raped? Stolen security, not knowing who to trust, looking suspiciously at every guy thinking, 'is he going to rape me today? ' What does it mean to be raped? Uncontrollable emotional outbursts, panic attacks, crying because you no longer look at men the same way that you used to. Being raped means all of this and more. Reading this amy, brought back my own horrific memories of my forceable rapes by both boys in my teens, and men afterwards. I can't trust men, and that is why after my transsexual surgeries are completed I will be lesbian, because at least I can still trust women. With super love & big as the sky hugs, Barbara 'If I have to be this girl in me, Then I have the right to be.'
