When I was nine

I met a man when I was nine,

his eyes were swollen like darkness filled his eyes.

I never knew how my body can be called paradise,

for sins that a person would never realise.

Taking off his clothes he whispered

words that shattered my fairy world,

I shouted and yelled but I realise my statements couldn’t be heard.

By a man coming from a place of desperation,

I looked in his eyes and uttered.

Can you keep yourself away from me a little,

as my breath couldn’t be felt, after this damage,

I’ll survive but couldn’t subsist.

When I was nine, I knew my body is a paradise

but not for sin that would damage my goddess soul.

-Riya Shah
