Taken

please stop child pornography. 
no, not the children 
leave them alone 
leave us alone..

Notice me
The narcissist in me is speaking
The side that needed not be revealed

No, not my wounds
Not while I’m licking them
Look away, my unclothed scars

In the rummage of thoughts
You search for my youthful innocence
Stop, somebody took them

I hated walking in shadows
Let the heat burn my skin
Let people know I exist

Exposed, I shy away
Back to the corner of insecurities
The attention is exhilarating

Notice me
No, not my wounds
In the rummage of thoughts

I hated walking in shadows
Exposed, I shy away
My insecurities on display

This is the part
That is least appealing
Upon leeches and malicious eyes

I am the easy prey
The sweetest candy you ever salivated
The child you took away

Cradle me to sleep
Blankets of forgiveness and prayers
God, are you still watching?

Did you look away?
When I was taken
Or did you just, stare?

  1. This is very raw and powerful AM, you write with a lot of clarity and express much in few words, even the title of the poem … ‘Taken’
