And I Hope

And I Hope…
August 21, 2014, 5:11 AM

And I hope it makes you feel
uneasy
Makes you feel that
profound, notorious
ache
in your chest
the same ache
as losing
an old toy.

And I hope you feel
like you
lost
a fragment
of your soul,
and I hope you know that I
lost
a fragment
of my soul,
my dignity.

And I hope you’ll
understand
one day,
that
a woman’s body
is
not
a commodity
but an intricate
temple.

And I hope you’ll find
your way
someday,
And I hope that it’s
not
between
a woman’s legs.

And I hope you know
that you
lost
a fragment of me,
And I hope you know
that I
lost
a fragment
of myself;
You.
