I wasn’t sure whether to post this as it is something which sends shivers down my spines. I was groomed as a teen by a much older man and had a very close call one night. Thankfully, i didn’t see him anymore after the incident but i had the courage to speak up to him and tell him NO!


I trusted you
Your golden words
Like sweetest honeydew
I, not even legal
Motives twisted
serpents like Medusa
my head anointed
with your snakes of
Trust askewed like
Cherry blossom
Scattered in
A dirty, secret, sordid

Your silver tongue
Entrapped my childish
Painted strokes of
Watercolour gaiety
Grooming me with colours
Pastel streaks of cultured
Happy endings
Operas of leading ladies
And they all
Looked like me
But should a girl
Of fourteen years
Be perched upon a
Bitter, twisted
Almost ancient
Dirty, flirty
Predator’s knee

To the whole world
It was an abhorration
I knew
Your sinful
Moulding guilt
Into the image of
My innocence
Carving filth
Into the statue of
My blamelessness
Dreaming too big
You promised it all
But sometimes
The wisest choices
Are fathomed
The guiltless
And small
And it’s you
Who had the
To fall
