Twenty Months: Sexual Violence Awareness Week

Twenty Months: Sexual Violence Awareness Week

It’s been twenty months

but at least once a week

I still discredit my mind’s version of that night

interrogate memories like they owe me answers

‘Why didn’t you fight back’

‘Maybe it wasn’t rape after all, just really bad sex’

‘You probably could have escaped if you tried’

It’s been twenty months

but at least once a week

I wish someone else would tell me

they still think like this too.
