In the dead of one rainy night
He crept into my room uninvited
Pinning me down to the bed very tight
He began to do what his body wanted.
This has become a regular ritual
That I’ve come to endure every night
The act has never been consensual
Utterly bruised, I’ve lost the will to fight
One night I wanted to run away and shout
But he threatened to kill me if I dare
Or have me immediately thrown out
Unless I yielded to him with my body bare.
He forced his hard-self deep inside of me
Just as he had done many times before
I know this was not meant to be
Because I know the reason I’m here for
I was brought in here to do the chores
And may be do all the biddings of madam
Now I’m treated like red-light district whores
Subdued, abused and forced to keep calm.
