I am not a Monster

Malicious laughter
grating in ear
hair gripped tight
hands grabbing
pulling free
tearing clothing off
taking what does not belong
nor freely given.
Heavy breath
face pressed to concrete
glitter on lashes
bite marks
guttural moan
you are done with me.
Little white boy
daddy’s paid
cronies bought
turned into…..
between two drunken teens.
pants on fire
you heard me say no…..
you heard me say no motherfuckerย 
two more times.
Innocent you are
judged so
byย misogynistic men
with black skeletons
dastardly sins
locked in their own closets.
You begged.
You pleaded.
You screamed no.
and over…..
and over.
Imploring with me
mouthing false apologies
thinking to sway
my soft feminine heart.
Walked away
heard the piteous moan
so unlike the one
you made
taking from me
peace of mind.
I am not a monster.
Called an ambulance I did
vigilante justice
you will never
hurt another woman again.

                  1. Iโ€™m not cranky ๐Ÿ˜

                    Iโ€™m not on the dark bus… for some reason Iโ€™ve been on this respect thingy. I guess Iโ€™ve been around the guys I work with too long.

        1. He worries too much. I keep telling him that as siblings we do not have to be nice and talk just to save feelings. We can say nah just quiet day for me. ***John I am sure your jaw hit the ground but occasionally I actually do not have anything to say. ๐Ÿค“๐Ÿ’œ
