Luring Men In

She encloses another inch of my skin

That I chose to show

Because apparently,

My skin lures men in.

                                                       

She drapes delicate cloth over me,

Followed by harsh words that make me bleed.

My mouth—

She seals it tight.

Because apparently,

It’s my fault if the men hurt me.
