Words And Voices: Good touch, Bad touch

Words And Voices: Good touch, Bad touch

This isn’t a lesson
in sex education
But i think I’ve had enough
When someone like you and me
Can’t understand the difference
Between good touch and bad touch

A good touch
Blossoms flowers in your heart
It makes you write poetry
About how their hands on your skin
Reminds you of a soft blanket
On a cold day,
It makes you want to dance in the rain
And tell everyone about how fun it was even though you contracted cold

A bad touch
Makes the sun in your heart set,
It makes your heart beats race
It reminds you of being lost in the forest
With no sign of finding your way home
It makes you want to hide somewhere
Because you feel something is wrong
From the bottom of your heart

When a man lays his hands on you,
And looks into your eyes
What to do you see?
Do you see a man who can’t wait
To grab you
And make you his meal
Like he’s a prancing tiger
And you are the prey,

Or do you see someone
Who wants to make you feel
Like its only you he’s loved?

When a man lays his hands on you,
And looks into your eyes
What do you see?

Do you see a man
Who does not let go
Even after you’ve kissed him once
Half heartedly
And forces you to kiss him more
When you go back home,
Do you cry because you feel dirty

Or Do you see a man
Who keeps asking you
If you’re uncomfortable,
If you want to stop right here
Because he does not want
To make you feel like you’re doing
Something wrong

Consent is a seven letter word
That a bad touch never seems to respect,
Force is a six letter word
That a good touch will never feel like

Its possible
You love someone
And you feel dirty
When their hands lay on your skin,
Its possible
That when they hold you down
And don’t let you go
Even if you say you’ve had enough,
Its not romantic
No consent is not romantic,
Him pushing you to the bed
When you don’t want to indulge in it
Does not make you “irresistible ”

What you call making love
Is just rape
Wrapped in a paper of romance.
