We were 16

I thought it was normal
You know
Boys wanting to touch you
That's what my mother said anyway
I took your touches as compliments
Those were the only compliments you gave me

You were 16

I didn't know kids were capable of this
Not you
You wouldn't do anything to hurt a girl
That's what you said all the time
But you grabbed my tits on the bus
And yelled
"My girlfriend wants my hard dick"
I didn't want it at all

I was 16

And this wasn't the first time
The second time or the last
These compliments
They put me in my place
"You're just frigid"
I believed it back then
Because everyone around me said it was true


I'm now 19

And I am free
He is with another girl
But I am with someone who loves me
These compliments still affect me though
I have to learn to trust again
