This Time

I walk with my head held low

Like many times before

But this time it was different

This time it was not because my mom told me to

This time it was not because I was supposed to avoid eye contact with men

This time it was because my dress was too short and my heels were too high and my hair was let low and my bra was too tight

This time it was because I said ‘no’ but my dress ‘yes’

I said stop but my heels said go

I said I’m sorry but my hair said its ok

I said I don’t want this but my bra said come get me

This time it was because I was eye candy

Because this time he saw me and wanted to taste

Because this time he took his bite but did not like what he tasted

Because this time he was just happy to get a taste of everything

This time it was because I bled for another man

This time it was because my innocence and dignity were taken away from me

This time it was because I would slip on my dress and walk home like nothing ever happened

This time it was because I wasn’t going to tell a living soul

This time it was because I knew this wouldn’t be the last time

Because I have heard about the many girls before me

Because I thought this would never happen to me, but it did

Because it would always be this way

Because there was nothing I could do about it
