“When I was a child, I was sexually assaulted, but not by any particular person. It was my culture that had his way with me.”

Julia Serano

when I spread

my legs &

whisper your name

you know I

don’t want you, I

want love, but I

don’t know where

it comes from. You

can feel how close

I am to breaking in two,

but still you cling

to me, tearing flesh

from bone, spilling

out my insides & there

are tears in my eyes

when I kiss you
