On when I learnt no does not mean no a poem (TW rape)

I feel you in my body
The fire, burning deep inside of me, of us
Cursing through my veins like red hot liquid oozing
And I am ready and willing for you

But little did I know, that when I said yes to one man
I said yes to all men
I said yes to never being allowed to say no
I said yes to no never meaning no
To no meaning yes in spite of every fibre of my body telling me that it is not so
I gave in to yes and gave up my no
I learnt that my body is not always my own
Little did I know this when I said yes to you

That I automatically say yes even when it isn’t so
