Life Never Found

06 Mar

I let words sex me.

So I guess at 9, I lost my virginity.

Between my legs, the words began to hurt.

I guess at 12, I lost my childhood.

I watered and tended the almost ripened fruit.

But when spring came my patch was barren.

Nine months passed.

I guess I lost my seed.

Soar knees now healing.

Clasped hands now released.

 I guess at 15, I lost my faith.

Shadows of sunlight.

Sharp skin embracing soft knives.

I guess at 20, I lost my mind.

    Wow. Very powerful imagery.
    And I love the Audre Lorde quote in your banner.
