The slashes on my wrists are too graphic

No, You’d rather see my tits out

Out for your pleasure

Not pressed against the sheets

As he holds me down

And rapes me.

You know rape exists

But you don’t want

To understand it.

So help me understand this;

Why people who lose their lives

Out in the war

Are heroes,

But people who lose the war

Inside their heads

Are cowards.

Because a war movie is just fine

As long as you can recognize

The enemy

An enemy that isn’t,

Could never be,

You.
