When You Rape Someone...

When you rape someone, You take more than their innocence, You take their life, Not physically, But mentally,Every corner is a fear,Every person they walk by is you, Every time they get close to someone,They fear the comments that come from telling them,When you rape someone, You take every single thing about them, You break them,You torture them, Even when you're not around anymore, You make them feel worthless, You make them feel like nothing,You hurt them physically,But in most cases, it's the mental scarring, It's the constant replays, It's the flashbacks,It's the shaking when you get touched, It's the heartbreak after heartbreak from the reminders, It's the empty bottles,The pill bottles,It's a blade,It's all because you couldn't take the answer "no."
