Until You Did

You swore you’d never hurt me

Until you did.

Today your control snapped

Like an overstretched rubber band.

Your rough hands holding me.

Lips smashed against mine

As I scream “No!” over and over.

My hands feebly trying to push you


That wasn’t the worst part

That came as you were leaving

I was still feebly saying, “No.”

In shock and mindlessness.

You turned back to me and

Emphatically said, “Yes.”

Like there was no arguing the point.

I was yours to do

With as you wished.

Then the door closed

And you were gone.

And I was left

To pick up the pieces

Of my shattered reality.
