"No."

December 29, 2017

You almost destroyed me.

I was left shattered into a million pieces

with nowhere to put them 

but the bags under my eyes.

And while I'm suffering

with the consequences of your mistake

you get to live a carefree 

happy life.

Do you even know what you did was wrong?

No, not just wrong.

Criminal.

You may never understand

that when I say no to anything

even the trivial things throughout my day,

I hesitate

I'm haunted by your touch.

At the time I blamed myself.

I should have pushed him off

or screamed for help.

I should have done something.

Anything. 

Now, I see I did.

I said "no."

Saying no is enough.

I wrote this straighten out my thoughts and heal from some trauma. I figured I might as well submit it, maybe it will help someone who went through a similar situation.
