How young

How naive

How stupid

How trusting

 

I was to think everyone is honest

 

False promises

Demeaning attitude

with simple words

words I ignored

 

Looking back on it in class

Realizing it didn't click

Half asleep and saying no

 

Ignored

 

Culture says

No means NO

Culture means

well...

if you weren't drinking

if you weren't smoking

if you weren't already exclusive

or consented last time

or went out

or smiled

or wore a dress

or

or

 

The suspicion hurts

Thinkin I could ask for it in sweatpants and a pajama shirt
