It’s Happening

It’s happening

It’s finally here

They say I have nothing to fear

And yet my legs tremble

My tears burn my eyes

And I am still struggling

He told me I was pretty

And sweet

Told me I was unique

I believed him

I needed him

And then he pinned me to a wall

I know I said no

Know I protested

Yet I’m still being questioned

While he sits there

Waiting for the verdict

And still thinking he did nothing wrong

The jury came back

Their eyes on me

Expressions of sorrow and grief

They thought he was guilty

But it doesn’t fix me

Why did I think it would fix me?

He’ll go to jail

I’ll still be in hell

Hearing him whisper not to tell

His breath hot on my neck

While I try to forget -

What happened
