Sexual Assault

Sexual Assault
A shameful occurrence no matter how hard a woman fought
I loathe a man, the word, NO, has never been academically taught
The mental and physical scars alone
It’s enough to send chills through my bones
The court system stigmatizes not once, but twice
It never seems to matter if the person is bad or nice
Defense’s castrated and marginalized version of the victim’s lies, never the whys
Prosecutor wants jail time, plea, or come to a mutual compromise
Did she inflame his thoughts with her high skirt
Breasts over-spilling her see through shirt

Hi my name is, Kurt
I will be honored to sit within your company, if not, I will be hurt
I saw your smile from across the bar
I live down the street, it’s not that far

You downed your fifth glass of wine
He saw you wobble your balance, cat and mouse game now on his time
You should feel safe within a man’s hand, comforted by his stance
But what happens when he has other devious plans
You’re nothing to him, but a physical slam bam and thank you ma’am
A hard target seeking gratification from a nightly grand slam

His place as we rest
He seems cool enough, look, he’s a New York fan of the Mets
Handsome, he’s definitely a sure bet
Would you like something to drink
Mind pondering, I’m already tipsy, if I accept, what would he ever think
Although, he does look good in his black denim jeans
Hard places bulging, if only you knew what I mean

Drink accepted lights turned down real low
Unwanted hands roving under my skirt very slow
I’m sorry not tonight…we’ve just met
Yes, for this you will allow and let

Woman flings hand aside and stands to her feet
Man stands and asks, what did you expect after our greet
Certainty not this as you turn to walk away
Back now gracing the couch cushion, the word, NO is all I continued to say
Closing my eyes, in disbelief as I silently heard myself loudly pray

The remorseful deed has now been done
College Ivy League, a soccer championship his team just won
He’s a good boy with a chance in life
My client will one day become some man’s wife
This sadden ordeal has caused her more than what meets the eye
Punish this animal before lightning strikes twice
He has treated a woman as cold as ice
For trusting his word came with a very high price
Guilt ridden for a criminal act, which was uncivilized

Now I’m made to feel
Traumatized
Victimized
Mental and physically brutalized
And you stand there defending a man with animalistic male cries
Pleading his case to seem legitimized
He didn’t know what he has done
Too many drinks he took it upon
Singing in court that same old tired, I can’t remember song
She wanted it, she was feeling on me all night long

Your head bowed in shame from the defense lawyer’s character assassination third degree
I told him no!... no!…no!…but he just didn’t listen to me
Was that with your shirt off as your nipples glistened to tease
I said No! and clothes were still on
What that cruel animal did to me is so very wrong

The day has finally come
To get my mental victory for this total scum
Thank goodness I did not back down, or refuse to run
Today, as I stand a victim, who would finally be free
Whereas, allow the world to see

Read from the mouth to say, not guilty, not even a plea
Oh, please tell me this just can’t be
They never once believed what he did to me
Poll the all male jury before I walk and go
I need to know which male do not understand when a woman says, NO, it means, NO
No satisfaction to soothe my mistrusted mind, rest my leery soul
Emotions now bottled up within a deep black hole
Heart of gold has turned to stone
Will these feelings of self-incriminating ever leave me alone

Hi, my name is Kurt
I saw your sexy smile from across the bar in that nice leather skirt
Join me for dinner and for a glass of wine
You really did not want the company, but his compliment seems so genuine
Investigating cases from the SVU files gave you the mental blues
Night alone, or with company you must choose

I do not live that far from here
I’m known to spread my Bronx good cheer
Reaching behind my skirt to make sure weapon is secured, in tow
As you both stand to go

At his place
With a muscular body and a handsome face
Breaking the ice, he’s now talking with roaming hands
I think I’ll call it a night as you stand
He stands too, how did my shirt get ripped
My knees have been dipped
My back clumsily hits the couch
Biting my lips, ouch
No…what...what are you doing
My body have not caught up with my mind, all thoughts are still brewing
His hands blanketing my crotch, shredding my panties, fingers are angrily pursing

 

Tat…tat…tat

And just like that

Kurt lies still on his back

The word, No, to a Tomcat has never been a known fact

Was defeated and brought down by a female rat

No! means No!

It’s simple, and it must be heard in tow

A word all men should be taught at an early age to know, so there you go

Therefore, no excuses, when the times arise

Just swallow your male pride, walk way for another day, or it could be your imminent demise

    Dont be mislead by a sly slippery tongued compliments from potential wolves. After all, you dont know what they do elsewhere, or what motivates them.
    ho-hum.
