I Was TOUCHED

This is what came bubbling up and out of me this morning…

I was TOUCHED
Touched by a man who thought
MY body was his, all his
To do as he pleased.

I was TOUCHED
And it hurt so much I couldn’t breathe.
I took the dirt and the pain of it
and I buried it deep.

I was TOUCHED
And I buried it all deep inside me
Buried it deep where no one would see
And covered it with shame.

I was TOUCHED.

Dedicated to all the women and girls out there who have been touched in ways that hurt

AND the good men who want to understand.
