Words of encouragement

She still feels what she felt that night
ashamed and embarrassed even worse now
She feels what she felt years ago
A century ago it felt the same and there is no one to help
His stab gets deeper as this rain gets heavy
The clouds are with her tonight
They groan and scream with her
The sky lights up in fury but the city is sound asleep
They sleep through the years knowing what they have done
The rain gets weaker, disappointed giving up in misery
No use shaking up the city, nothing has changed deafness prevails
He said its her fault to complain, he said he knows whats better for her
She chose to get touched, she should have  been sober
It was a dumb mistake, he is not a predator
He is innocent ,  men will be men
He is just thirsty, Don’t take it this far 
Don’t tarnish his reputation,Are you sure you want to do this?
He said /she said who do I believe?
Men get touchy feely, he is ready to apologize
He  has only done this with two women
Its not a pattern, Its not a big deal
Dont do this, don’t let him get expelled
He has learned his lesson,  that was not sexual assault he didn’t even realize
Stay away from him, don’t go to social hour if he is there
Dont drink if he’s around, let it be 
All these  words of encouragement make the rain pour harder
And the city sleeps, like it has always been…
