Poem: Attention

(For National Poetry Month I am writing a stream-of-conscious poem per day. Each poem is  a spontaneous poem single edit – could get messy!  Here is Poem #1.)

look at me
– won’t you please!
see me pout
– catch this selfie!

here i am
– sexually explicit
why do you
– feel the need to harass me?

just because
– i show you every inch
of my body
– doesn’t mean you’ve seen

what it is
– i hide deep inside
in the darkness
– where i cry

can’t you see
– i need you to see
the hidden me
– secretly hidden away

find me
– before i vanish
tell me
– i’m okay as i am



Shall we have a conversation?
