The atmosphere in the basement was thick,
The party was so intense you could not even think.
Everyone was dancing, drinking and having fun.
This was basically everyone, all except one.
Her name was Jessica, she was only sixteen.
She had sneaked out of her house just to be seen.
Jessica was a smart and pretty girl, but her self esteem was low
She was sitting at the party, watching everyone dance and put on a show..
Along came a guy, he told her if she wanted to get out of there.
She hesitated at the offer, but let the pressure get the best of her.
They went outside; he talked to her like no guy had ever before
He looked in her eyes asking for something much more.
They went to his car for the sole intention of talking,
But he tried to kiss her with out even stopping.
She felt dizzy and slug, you see the drink he had gave her
Had contained some type of tranquillizing drug
That night he had raped her over and over,
With no type of Mercy until he had gotten sober.
She woke up naked covered in blood,
Screaming and screaming with all her might
Only to discover that that guy she barely knew was nowhere in sight.
A month passed and she was still scared,
Only because a guy had gone way too far.
Feeling pain she began to worry, running to the hospital in a hurry.
Jessica was told to be infected, as the doctor diagnosed her with HIV,
She felt like her life would no longer be.
This was the story of a girl, who deserved so much better,
But to her it seemed like life was eternally out to get her.
