#MeToo. I remember wondering why a 29 year old man would be interested in a 12 year old girl.

#MeToo.

#MeToo.

I remember wondering why a 29 year old man would be interested in a 12 year old girl.

I remember feeling flattered at first;

That feeling dissolved quickly.

I remember wearing turtlenecks and sweatpants every day,

Because I thought it was the way I dressed

I remember carrying this secret for years and years

Because you told me it was my fault.

I remember finally telling someone

Nervous, my hands shaking

Guilt and shame curdled beneath the skin on my cheeks

My voice, a whisper

Barely falling off of my lips

I remember feeling dirty and tainted

And no amount of showers or baths could cleanse what you had soiled

I remember sitting in the bath, holding my rubber ducky

My only confidant

Who didn't scorn my tears

I remember being scolded after I set my truth free

I remember detectives telling me there “wasn't enough evidence”,

Little girls like to make up stories

“He would never do that, don't ruin his future

Maybe he was being nice and you took it the wrong way”

Your hands on my hips, sliding lower and lower

Until you snuffed out my innocence like the flame of a candle

I took it the wrong way

I remember the animalistic look in your eyes

Like you were a lion, and I was your prey

Now, I am the lion

No one

Can dull my flame
