I Should Speak Too

Leave me to rant
I deserve some audience
I deserve to be heard
I should have a voice

I thought we could argue
I thought you understood
I thought you could deduce
That a conversation can go south or not

You hit me for the first time
Apologized a minute after
Said it was a slip
A slip that was a little too hard

You raped me for the first time
In your words I needed it
I’m pretty sure that was all you
You said it was for the best

4 years and no more
No more because it ended
No more because I absconded
No more because I’m dead.
