Knock me down and break my legs
So that I can’t even fight when you
Stick it in me again, born for your
Amusement, is that right? Born for
Your candy hungry eyes, born to be
Ogled at and grabbed, born to be your
Soundless decoration, born to be attacked
And held down on the floor as you rip
Off my clothes and touch my body and
Then go to your friends and call me whore,
You didn’t tell them that I fought back, that
I screamed and yelled and cried while
You laughed and grabbed and smiled and
Threw me down again, yeah she’s a whore,
She’s a whore, she’s a whore, because
You can never own me, I’m a whore, you
Selfish and pitiful little pieces of our
Disgusting and broken society

While writing this I was enraged (needless to say) so if I offend you.. well.. sorry... but I don't really care. It should unnerve you. Here's the truth as it has been presented to me. My pieces of reality.. my spit.. my blood.

Oh, sweet sweet girl...I truly hope this never happened to you...as I was raped, abused & all of that [edited by moderator], I hope you never have to go through that pain and if you already HAVE....oh my, I'm so so so sorry sweetheart and if you need anything let me know-I'll do whatever I can...

this poem has so much emotion and truth and its written so well even though it is so painful to read (and even more so to write) and there is so much anger...Ah, I'm sorry this just hit a weak spot on me..I know the feelings in this poem, keep your head up.  They cant get you.

Jaime, sweetheart...I am so so sorry..I can't even express the pain I feel for you..I understand what you're going through and how you may feel, if you need someone to talk to, I'm here for you.  So sorry you had to go through something like this. :'(

This happened years ago. I don't want any pity or sympathy. Thanks, but I don't want it. I just wrote this because I'd be lying if it had no effect on me... because this crap is so passive that people don't see it and they trade in compassion and courage for apathy because it's easier to just not care. So it's not just the actual actions and mentalities there is to fight, but also the silly illusions we've all formed in out minds to make everything easier.

I really do appreciate the offer, but I'm okay. Believe it or not.

Jaime,
I DO believe you're ok..I'm not giving you pity, only empathy as I know how it feels.  I agree completely with what you've got to say..I read your poetry pretty consistantly and really like the truth and emotion (as well as the style) with which you write.  
Anyways, I'm just here to say I enjoy what you write, and even if most people are scared of hearing the truth, I really appreciate and understand what you say.  And its all so well written. So...I'll leave you alone now..I'm glad you're ok, and if in the future you ever do need anything, just know I'm here. Sorry for the corn, ...I dunno what I'm saying...just, well..take care of yourself.

i've read your other replies to this poem, so i won't give you a big dramatic speech about how sad i am, although i am of course. i'm not being insensitive, just doing what you asked.  i also wanted to say i really enjoy your writing for alot of different reasons. okay, so here is what i think...i thought the rage in this was great, not just sitting around and being a another victim, but in fact making it a [edited by moderator]. i don't know you, but i'm proud that you were so strong with your words. i also liked how you just bluntly made the title "rape" instead of trying to dance quietly around the subject.  thank you for sharing this, and yay@you for being strong with it.

Wow. That was well written. A subject not often talked about (not that I'm saying it should). Odd how experiences vary, ne?

wow.  thats all i can really say.  I've had a similiar experience, but i wasn't pushed down, or had my clothes ripped off. the guy that did it to me, just did it over and over again. everytime i saw him.  ::shudders:: anyways, it was something that i don't think anyone should be offended by, very touching, and its so real you make us see it as you saw it. as if we were looking through your eyes as it happened.  once again GREAT JOB, i'll be looking for more of your stuff. i hope you don't mind, but i added this string to my library.  thanks much! keep writing!!!

O my God, so it's happened to you to?  Please tell me you got some justice.  The work is wonderful, if only the idea was not what it was.  Why do some men have to be like that?  It's not even write to call them men but I don't think I should use the proper name for them here.  Hope your ok, I really do.  It's hard to bounce back from, I know.

I can almost hear you screaming this inside my head, which only adds to the fact that this shows what rape is.  Rape is many things and it just rips apart everything.
I understand about not wanting pity, but I just want to congradulate you on being such a strong person.  Great Write!

I meant it to be general. I think anyone who would do such a thing is pitiful and disgusting. Not just the men who did it to me. Thanks for your honesty. I appreciate it very, very much.

Thank you all for replying and offering support. I'm glad that I could speak to you all on this level. Even if we're just names on a screen.  

Thanks again.

You can't call those beasts men. They don't deserve the title. And what's worse is that most rapists, if convicted, usually only get a few years. The longest penalty I've heard of, at least in the state of Alabama, is 14 years. Most get 3-5. Then they're let back on the streets. If anything, those bastards deserve to be castrated without anasthesia(sp?), then locked in solitary confinement for the rest of their pitiful little lives.

Anyway....incredible poem. Your anger could easily be felt.

I think I'd rather just beat them to death and call it a day. Why waste space?

Anywho, thank you for the reply. And it's true about the way "justice" is carried out.. very sad... they say "Here mister.. you'll pay for 3 to 5 years for a rape that your victim will be haunted by for the rest of her life. Yes, you've stolen a piece of her that can never be returned. Bad, man! Bad! *slap on the wrist*"

what an AMAZING poem-such a horrible topic-yet still an outstanding poem
It's so horrible that such horrible things happen to such talented people

*side note*
in ancient cultures women used to mate with men then time them to horses and rip them apart...


neither sex is perfect but rape should have a much harsher punishment

your such a strong person to be able to write then publish a poem about such a tramtic event

Yea, the ones that are convicted.  But what about the ones who are never even touched cause your pathetic excuse for a mother is to uncareing to believe you when you say it's happened to you.  Even when the guy was 18 and you were a minor.  Then you get stuck on birth control and he gets away and is free to rome the streets(that are close to your house).-------Sorry, slight moment of rage there.  But the justice system is to messed up when it comes to that subject.

This is a sad poem but you wrote it really good, you expressed yourself really well. I'm sorry about what happened to you. Keep on writing poetry, even if you just want to express yourself. thank you for sharing.

It irks (most definately understatement of course) me so much that people roam this earth with no conscience nor guilt whatsoever with what they have done to another human being..they don't deserve to breathe the air we breathe..hrm..I'm feeling a bit po'd at the world..but the kewl thing is..they always get it back..woohoo Karma rocks..lol sorry..lighten up the mood..*goes back to being *censored* * but another good thing is life can only get better...

If at first you don't succeed destroy all the evidence that you tried.

What can I say? I don't know you, so all I can say is that I feel so sad that these things happen. And that this is an astounding piece of poetry. Admittedly, it isn't "nice" reading, but confronts an often ignored subject extremely well. Well done.

I feel that this was very well done. Absolute emotion on paper...not the prettiest of topics, but I suppose that would be a given? Never get discouraged from writing what you feel.
