    This piece is tragically beautiful. The numbering form gives the sense of needing to reestablish order and control. Effective. Poignant.

    Breath of fresh air, thank you. Capturing the weight of being raped without slipping beneath it, no small feat.
    Thank you, lisa.

    Don’t take a small number of comments as a comment on the fineness of the piece. We just don’t know what to say. As in life.

    Very touching, moving way of sharing something so deeply painful.

    As I read this I moved from my “attic” to my body… I felt this every bit as much as I “read” it. Wow. I’m in awe. Thank you.

    Your story is so tragic; I’m so sorry that this happened to you and your friend. I can’t even imagine the road of recovery that the two of you have to go through. Thankfully, you have a trusted companion that understands your situation. Your experience, though devastating, is simultaneously inspiring. It takes a special kind of strength and self-confidence to continue past that horrendous incident. You mention that you live in the attics of your body and do not like to go down to the lower levels. However, I know that your current “run-down building” will soon be renovated to a luxury building with the finest construction. In due time, you will be able to take an elevator to your first floor. No matter what, though, you cannot let those garbage excuses of human-beings define the two of you. You are much more than that, what happened to you is not your fault. Even though I can’t see you or know what you look like, I know that you are beautiful and strong.
