I have used a light color today to dress my lips,And a dark touch to shade my eyes. I have stepped out to seek someone.I am standing across the road & my eyessearching for a buyer to take me,seduce me, molest me.To snatch my existence from me.As the sun snatches the existence of ice balls and converts them into the water.I have stepped out in this midnight,To plead someone to shatter me,Shatter every piece of me,To confiscate my identity As the hurricanes have done to islands. It is raining today.Rain trickling down as a curse for me. No one is out here to hear my begging.No one is here today, to shatter me. The drop of rains have made my lips naked,And caused my eyes to flood.My face has gone dark,I don’t want to be here.But –My brother is 3 & my sister is 7!They won’t eat tomorrowBecause I wasn’t shattered,I wasn’t broken.I am a beautiful young woman,I have heard them calling me by name,Prostitute.
