"We know what we are, but not what we may be" - Shakespeare



the pouring rain started smashing into the

field where we stood,

back to a tree and 

his body in front of me.

The rain soaked his neck and

I felt his breath sting

 my elongated throat as

his hands traced the outline of my body,

His coarse compelling fingers 

dirtied my brush fire skin

when he asks me if I am

okay with this, I say yes but I mean no. 

I say yes but I mean no. 

he rips off my jacket like he is trying to find

what is left of me.

My lips are now cracked,

I am left with a body of wreckage. 

He leaves and doesn’t look 


I look back.

Shame paints me broken to this name. 

I give with my crying hands and he takes

and to reality

tears scratch and moan from the corners of my trembling brown eyes.

I try to breath and wet lips corner me.

The pounding of my chest is undressed.

My hair is tangled

my limbs are shaking

I lick my lips and taste the pain.
