I thought you were lucky
To be chosen, what did we know then
All the pressures that be
Though we hadn’t learned a basic love

I thought I would never talk, would never share
But you brought it back
These common threads, we weave a net
Catch pieces of us we were robbed of

We recall the weight of his body
We carry it everyday like gravity
I thought you could be trusted
I entered your house asking for help
I cried ‘help keep me safe’
But in your grip my body was limp and twisted
You said ‘Sleep here, I’ll be good’

(I thought your kiss was an invitation
A subtle cue that no must mean yes)

We recall the weight of his body
We carry it everyday like gravity
You’ll get what you came for
They’ll all believe my loud ‘no’ was misunderstood
I learned how to cry because of you

(A lie spoken by my distorted manhood
I want to tell you my violence is self loathing
Ask my father the question why I never
Learned how to cry)

I hold it I feel it 
We hold it, we feel it, we carry its weight
Like gravity
