Why did it have to be you - February 20th 2009, 07:54 AM

Out of the two of us, I'd always thought it'd be me
so along with the short skirts, I wore heals
so I can bring a man to his knees and make his precious dominating ego bleed
and regret the day he decided he'd rape me
I had my brother teach me how to box and practiced everynight with weight in hands
now its not because I knew anyone who had
I had just been called a tease too often to sit here
and let anything like that hapen to me
and if it did I was prepared to let my voice ring like Tsunami sirens
until the waves stopped, I know there'd be no way to repair the damage
but maybe if they were aware this was a flood zone
someone else won't have to let their self respect get washed away

Out of the two of us, I'd never thought it'd be you
and by your boyfriend none the less,
he was easy on the eyes, but devolped some kind of hideous monster inside
that stole
stole my best friend
I got your call today with your voice shaking in fear saying I dont want to be here anymore
but please dont tell anyone
I can bare having his family hate me
anyway, It cant be rape
cause all i said was stop, i was too scared of what would happen
if i spoke the words no

it took al i had not for you to hear my tears flow
I dont how I let this happen to you
and i know that living 5000 miles away
makes it impossible for me to do anything
but listen

Out of the two of us, you were the listener
you were the giver, the one who told me to calm down hun, it'll be all right
you made everyone a better person
I was the one scared of the night despite my love for the dark
I considered myself your rock
sitting idle on your ocean floor
reminding you that you were grounded
but he forced your tide to go down
and now you can barely reach me
barely walk down the halls w/o shivering
get into a car w/o shaking
god, how can you let so many women live with that kind of aching
and be so far w/o a system to support themselves
why are you letting them fall
while the men stand tall above them
getting away with a crime worse than
murder
at least those victims don't have to live with it

It was always the two of us
closer than sisters, attached by the heartbeats
of two souls that complement each other like yin and yang
so i dont undertsand why im crying as you cry, joints filling w/ pain while your body screams sounds
that you
you have never heard before
and no matter how hard i research
i dont know the cure
and its driving me fucking crazy because
you are going through something, that as
sick as it sounds
should have been me
and if i could
i would lift this burden off your body
and teach your limbs how to move again
because the good should not have to let themselves
descend below the demons that took them

It's now on me
to whisper that it will be okay,
to listen to everything you can and cannot say
to give you the shoulder, and every spare body part you need
to keep yourself breathing
its now on me to the keep the secret
until you feel its safe
