It Was Dark That Night

It was dark that night

But still and warm

And silent outside

 

It was dark that night

We were all in the pub

Celebrating my birthday

 

It was dark that night

I had no cares in the world

I didn’t know you

 

It was dark that night

We all laughed

You were quiet

 

It was dark that night

We were all drinking

You were not

 

It was dark that night

We were all drinking

You started drinking and said what happens will be my fault

 

It was dark that night

You spoke

I laughed not knowing what you meant

 

It was dark that night

So dark

So very very dark

 

It was dark that night

We walked as a group

Someone got lost

 

It was dark that night

You offered to go with me

And find them

 

It was dark that night

I was drunk

We looked and called into the silence

 

It was dark that night

You grabbed hold of my arms and said

“I can do whatever I want and no one will hear you out here”

 

It was dark that night

So very dark

I pulled away and ran

 

I ran

I ran

I ran

My heart pounded

I ran

I ran

I ran

It was dark that night

 

It was dark that night

I saw house lights

I felt safe

 

It was dark that night

As I ran in through the doors

You asked what happened

 

It was dark that night

I told you all to shut the door

When he arrived and banged I said “Don’t let him in”

 

It was dark that night

You let him in

I was terrified

Before I said a word he said

“It’s not true, whatever she says it’s not true”

 

It was dark that night

You all broke me

You didn’t exactly call me a liar

 

It was dark that night

When you all pointed out

My words could have consequences

 

It was dark that night

Over 20 years ago

I put it into a small box

 

It was dark that night

When you violated me

You are darkness

 

I walk in the dark now

I look over my shoulder

The fear there, the memory supressed

 

It was dark that night

It was so dark that night

So dark.
