The Night ~ Kristen Radford

The night I will always regret
The night I would want to forget

The night where he asked me dance,
The night I just gave him a chance

The night he held me to the ground,
The night I felt jail-bound

The night he hurt me, hurt me so much
The night I thought I could trust

The night he was ape,
The night, regretful night, I was raped

***This poem is not autobiographical but inspired by the novel Speak by Laurie Halse Anderson.
