pieces of me

would you care to know

what you did to me

when you devoured this little girl

and used her innocence

to satiate your hunger

you ripped me into pieces

until, separate from all feeling

i became numb

to the consumption

of my parts

you cut my voice from me

so that i can never sing

or scream for help

you cut my heart from me

so that i can never love

or express anger

you cut my mind from me

so i can’t trust my reason

or my rhyme

you cut my hands from me

so that i can never touch

or push away

you cut my feet from me

so that i can never dance

or run away

you cut my ears from me

so i can’t hear tender words

or words of danger

you cut my nose from me

so that i can’t smell the flowers

or the fumes

you cut my eyes from me

so i can’t see the light

in this darkness

you cut my womb from me

so that i can’t feel pleasure

without pain

and i give birth

to death

like humpty dumpty

cracked open and exposed

and broken into

oh so many pieces

that even these King’s men

can’t put me back

together again
