Take Me In



Image from: here

 Heads turn around when I walk.
I bend down,
Giving them a good show.

I tie my hair up,
My neck revealing my availability, 
Open shirt buttons
Screams- 
‘Come get me’.

Legs hitched up over the table,
Smoke coming out within my red lips.
All eyes on me,
Well, who wouldn’t want me!

People surround me.
Boys want to get in with me.
Money I have,
The assets- plenty!

The day passes,
I smile all through it.
But as the dark approaches,
Lonely I start to feel.

A home I haven’t got,
Love never came to me..
Looking at my reflection,
I don’t recognize whom I see.

Tired I feel,
Lost I totally am.
If I cry,
Who’ll hold me?

The world spins,
As I inject some more life into me.

Slowly I drift away..

To a world,
Where I believe I’m meant to be.

  1. so sad....one many levels...the need to dress up and show ones sexuality to get attention and still go home alone it makes one feel so empty not to have one to love you just for who you are...

  8. I said it on Twitter recently but there is beauty in ugliness, and ugliness in beauty, if you take the time to see it.

  9. Aw wow, this is so beautifully written, a tale that is bittersweet, its so strange how we wear a mask in public and yet when we're alone we are someone completely different.
