A Little Piece of Me


What forced yourself to touch me?
found your hands against my skin
I said stop, to no avail, it wouldn't end
I got up, walked away, as you'd pretend
Nothing of this sort have happened

Since then, I'd become distant towards you
You've placed me in an uncomfortable position
If only I knew of the hell you'd try to put me through
Made attempts that were unsuccessful,
falling into a state of your own depression

You tried to take my innocence away
I wouldn't allow it
claimed you loved me but love knows no hurt
You tried to break down my sense of security
just to get a little piece of me

Poem of the Day

poet Emily Dickinson

"Arcturus" is his other name—
I'd rather call him "Star."
It's very mean of Science
To go and interfere!

I slew a worm the other day—
