What It Seems
We’re told were tainted
when a man takes
our virginity but the
man is praised- what
does that teach us?
That a man can ruin
us with a mere touch
and empty words?
That somehow we’re
devalued but a man
is worth more?


What I’ve Made It 
We’re taught that sex
is a cry for love. That
a good fucking will cure
the blues and mend
a broken heart. I take
blame. Because when I
am sad, I wish to drown
in the love of another.
And maybe it works
for a while but I lose
sight of what love really is.
