What Does it Take to Become a Rapist?
by Quinn Vokes
What does it take to become a rapist?
She didn't understand quite what she was getting into,
That poor, sad girl who only wanted love.
That poor, sad girl who became a rapist overnight.
The slow changes, the fleeting moments
When I should have seen it coming
Fuck-me pumps, anorexic jeans
When I didn't want to see it coming
A person is capable of anything under the right circumstances,
she whispered with warm breath into the night
Long, dark hair lingering
Dark complexion enticing
How erotic she was
We sat and talked and laughed and drank
I passed out
and now I wonder
Did she rape me too?
I'm not dead she cried, Don't look at me like I'm DEAD!! inside
Was my body violated,
or only my mind?
