Does it burn
strings of a once healthy heart?
Plucked and strummed
Just to be picked apart
Have you succumbed
To the bitterness of a
broken heart?
Was it the stench of lust
that caught your breath?
Or Seduction
Ready to plunge in
past tender skin
Pulsing with
the rush of the temporary.
Blissful remains
that you cannot hurt She
who you treasure.
Talia Nov 7
Is it sweet
yet like a scorpion tail
Do you really remember
Not to sink but swim?
crimson casualties cascade
delicately down
a cupid’s bow
row row row
yourself in my boat
gently down
this fatalistic dream.

I shouldn't have been there
I better not tell
I shouldn't have dressed ****
I better not tell

I shouldn't have gotten drunk
I better not tell
I shouldn't have laughed at his jokes
I better not tell

It was so long ago
Better leave it alone
I'll ruin his life
Better leave it alone

He shouldn't have drunk so much
It wasn't my fault
He shouldn't have held me down
It wasn't my fault

He shouldn't have forced me
It wasn't my fault
He shouldn't have ***** me
It wasn't my fault

It wasn't just me
I'm not alone
Will he do it again?
I'm not alone

I'll tell my story
It wasn't my fault
I'm not alone
The time has come to tell the truth.  even if it's to purge yourself of the burden of carrying it alone.  This thankfully is not my story.  I have one too, but it doesn't, thank God, involve actual ****.  It does involve me not wanting to tell.  I protected my predator, but I know and so does he, that It wasn't my fault.....I'm not alone.

one day I will be oh-
so tall and with my gathered tears
i will build a water wall
nor paddle nor wind for I
will be flying
with a cast of all those with prisoner tongues marching behind me.

You drag me in
past the point of
personal boundaries
Hands like hot plates
welded to my waist

Eyes undress me
with a penetrating stare
exposing me to everybody
Your kind lurk everywhere

I struggle away from
potent, *** ridden breath
that invades my air space
I try to breathe in
some respect
from anybody, anywhere?!

Life has no secrets...
she's always been transparent,
the veil is only in the eyes,
for eyes without love don't see life.
We must give ourselves in the occasion
is not worth waiting
because each moment that is lived,
is the exact moment to surrender.
