Words of Survival

A collection of poetry. Trigger warning; mentions of abuse, self-destruction, mental illnesses and so.


5. Puppet

He told me I was born to serve,

that women were beneath men.

I was stupid

and I believed him.


Sometimes he would grab my phone and growl.

I told my friends to leave me alone.


I became alone, with his hands on me

and his name became a trigger.


They never teach you in school 

about men who takes your friends


I learnt about STDS,

condoms and how to be straight.

No one ever said that sex could abuse,

that those we trust

would use our fragile bodies

to mold us into puppets,

for their play.
