"I am learning not to say I was raped, but a man raped me. Grammatically, this is the difference between the passive and active voice. As I often tell my writing students, the active voice is preferred unless you are trying to hide responsibility."

Anonymous asked: <p>I turned my back on him for five seconds, and there was a knife at my throat. I have never been more scared or felt more disgusting in my entire life. I’ve been taking three showers a day since it happened two months ago. I feel broken.</p>
It was bright the day he stole me,
It was bright the day he trapped me,
Still it was bright the day he took me;
owned me, used me.
A life robbed and broken,
loveless and empty,
cold and bitter;
Still it was bright the day he stole me
While it was dark forever within me.
