He Just Kept Pushing - A Poem about Feeling Violated and How to Make Him Stop

Updated on December 23, 2014

Don't Push Me


He just kept pushing

And pushing

And her mind screamed against it

As her mouth had

Many times before.


His words, his caresses

From the past

Had led them to this moment

And how her lips were mute

As numb as her mind.


She supposed she had weakened—

At least somewhat—

As his endless pursuit of her

Seemed to pull from her

Her strength, her stance.


Now in only moments she felt

Ripped apart

As he turned abruptly from her

And she lay stunned

Turning away to one side.


His breathing was even

Her own—ragged

She choked back rising nausea

And hated them both

As hot tears quietly escaped her.


Curled up in a ball

She felt cold

And in shame felt in some way

This had to be

A reflection of herself.


April is National Poetry Month

I'm a little behind on sharing a poem a day for poetry month. I'll recycle one for today, one of the earlier ones that I shared on HubPages. I encourage your to write and share your own poetry, or at least poetry written by other hubbers. Enjoy National Poetry Month! #14

      Hey Vicki, a very powerful scribe you have here. I know many people who this describes. It's direct and on point. It speaks volumes. Voted up! :)

      I really like the 5th stanza. Such a vivid feeling. Great expression of an overwhelming emotion!

      Raw, erotic and beautifully painful.

      So many have no idea what treasures they hold.

      Thanks for saying that I am succeeding at that level, Epi. That means a lot coming from you! Hope you enjoyed your coffee and music--two more things that I love....

      ......you have a very nice style and I appreciate the way you leave space inbetween for your reader to fill in the blanks - poetic narrative or storytelling can be a difficult genre to master as there is a fine line between giving away too much or being able to tell your story with some degree of clarity and substance - you are succeeding at this balance admirably .....

      Binaya, sometimes you are so deep, I'm not sure I understand what you're saying--LOL! Your depth is something I like about your work, though. Thanks for the comment. I'm going to chew on this one for a while!
