A Manifesto of Sexual Abuse

“I am a hunter and the best – a predatory beast. 

You are the hunted, the prey and the least.”

– Lori Anne Thompson

I will come to you along the lines of relationship.

I will find you where you are the weakest… your vulnerability makes me salivate.

I will come to you once or repeatedly, it matters not; my needs are satisfied with momentary or long-term abuse.

I will shatter your sexuality in seconds and you will work for the rest of your life to pick up the shards with broken hands.

I will slither my way into the tender places of your body, soul and spirit.

I will crawl into the small spaces reserved for the sacred and commit sacrilege.

I will sidle up to your deepest needs.

I will cull your trust with cunning caresses and compassionate care.

I will invite you into a choice-less choice…

I will cackle when you “choose” in chains.

I will inseminate you with my evil so that I will forever be a part of you – for generations.

I will use all of your natural needs to lure you, lie to you, lie with you and lie about you.

I will coax a response from your body, even the touch you crave – you will abhor.

I will fragment your mind and enslave your will.

I will spin around you, through you, surround you and eventually… enter into you.

I will feast on you, you are fodder only for my hunger.

I will never slumber and you will never sleep – without me, again.

I will steal your peace, your trust, your hope, your faith, your dignity and your glorious voice.

I will contaminate all of your relationships.

I will continue to give you these relational ‘gifts’ long after I am gone.

I will do all that I can to ensure your silence; my power is limited but you do not know that.

I will mix a perfect cocktail of truth with a soothing elixir of lies; strengthening my diabolical deception.

I will blame you. I will tell myself that you like it – you wanted it even. If you were not such a whore, this would not be happening to you.

I will cause you to betray your own body.

I will breach all of your boundaries.

I will break all that is beautiful.

I will incite you to scream in silence.

I will murder your soul but leave behind the shell of your physical frame.

I will hide the evidence of my crime just behind your eyes.

I will caution you, I have but one weakness… Truth.

I will have none of that.
