Virgin Words

 
my very first exchange
of a sexual nature
made me just a little
mature for my age
was just a little girl
when two teenage boys
told me to lay naked
made me ashamed
right from the start
no supportive adults
so i suppressed it all
now too uncomfortable
even saying certain words
like penis and vagina
wash my mouth out
with soap, donít repeat
what iíve told them all
dirty girl, she was only
eight years old

Author's Note
Therapist says this is a safe space
Says we can use these words like commonplace
That's great that you can, but I'm coming from another state
