Him and Me and The World

Trigger Warning: Rape

His caps lock key is stuck, constantly yelling society’s standards at me.

You must wear a dress.

You can’t show too much skin.

But a little skin would be…good.

He scans me up and down, staring at my chest longer than one is supposed to. I attempt to hide in my hoodie which I’m already overflowing in as he lurches toward me.

I want a hole to open up underneath me. I want to run away from him. I want someone to pass by the scene and pretend to be my best friend in order to get me out of this situation.

But no one came. There’s nowhere for me to go. It’s just him and me and the world.

As he grabs me with his desperate claws, a void opens within me. It burns. It yells. It screams that something is so wrong. It fights against the true evil. Him.

It’s right. I know what it’s doing and what it’s telling me is right.

But he won’t leave me alone. He never will. He’s too desperate for human contact that he can’t even leave a young girl alone. No. He has to fuck her up too. Add her to the list of people he’s fucked up over the years.

As he takes away everything I ever had, it’s just him and me and the world. The void in me keeps opening and opening, swallowing me whole.

No one came to save me.
