A year ago, I separated from my husband. I was all over the place emotionally. I was in love with my roommate and it was unrequited. One night he went out with another friend of mine and was out al night long, when my friends wife told me they went to the bar, I gto angry. Then, I got drunk. This guy I had kind of sort of been talking to hit me up. I had him pick me up and we rode around for awhile. I was blasted. Like so drunk I could barely see straight. He took me back to his place and we watched a movie. When the time came and I was ready to go home... He flipped.
He said, "I didn't drive all the way to your house and pick you a$$ up to get nothing."
I said, "I just wanted to blow off some steam and hang out, I am ready to go home. Take me home."
He proceeded to rip my clothes off and then I blacked out. When I came to, he was putting my in the shower... He left me to clean myself up and I held back the tears.
On the way to my house, I had him play a song. Velvet, by Stoney LaRue.
Here I walk, an empty shell even though
It's hard to tell this lonesome hand
It's taken it's toll and I just don't know how far it can go
Well come down and watch your first step
Don't do anything you might regret
Cause you're much too innocent to suffer
It wasn't all sunny days
Picking through your memories
Oh the rain came down and you covered me in velvet
Oh you covered me in velvet
There you are it's like a song I heard
In a smoky bar where the whiskey stirred
Just like my heart and it's dancing alone
And it seems like it just won't ever end
Well come down and watch your first step
Don't do anything you might regret
Cause you're just much too innocent to suffer
It wasn't all sunny days
Picking through your memories
Oh the rain came down and you covered me in velvet
Oh you covered me in velvet
Another turn, another cautious step
Will we ever learn just how lonesome can get
You caught me running, running away
And I just don't know how long I can stay
Well come down and watch your first step
Don't do anything you might regret
Cause you're much too innocent to suffer
And it wasn't all sunny days
Picking through your memories
Oh the rain came down and you covered me in velvet
Oh you covered me in velvet
Oh you covered me in velvet
In velvet
In velvet
It got me home, he didn't even pull up my driveway. He dropped me up. As I walked up my driveway barefoot and dripping wet from the shower, I saw my friend and roommate sitting outside. My roomie looked me up and down and down.
He said, "Looks like you had fun."
I sat down on the tailgate of my truck and he went in the house and passed out. My other friend asked me what happened. I told him everything. I cried and cried. I couldn't stop the tears. His wife asked me about my night the next day, I told her what happened.
She said, "Well, you got in his truck. You knew what was going to happen. It was consensual till you didn't want it anymore."

That's how I feel. I feel like I knew better than to climb into his car. I guess I have made peace with the fact I knew better, and I just acted on impulse. It gets to me,I still can't listen to that song.... I just wanted to share my story. Thanks for taking the time to read it.
