Rape
a few drinks
that took me farther than I wanted to go
I didn't call it that when it happened
years of torture passed
before it spoke its name
and reality finally sunk in
I was robbed
it was a theft of innocence
yet I chose to serve the sentence
bending my knee
to guilt and condemnation
that lasted nearly a quarter of a century
I was poisoned
some Judeo-Christian religious morphism
said I was a bad girl
needing to be punished
what ensued was a harsher judgment
then any court would have handed down
to my assailant
I realize now
how very wrong it was
God's not like that
and neither am I
