Letter of a daughter


Please daddy, please
Why do you hurt me when mom’s away?
Every time my womb hurts
A doctor comes who takes the pain way.
-
Please daddy, please
Why do you kiss my breasts when mom’s away?
Every time I fall asleep
I feel your lips upon my skin.
-
Every night I cry myself to sleep
Knowing that the pain will come again
The pain between my legs,
That I yet to understand
-
Please daddy, please
Why won’t my mommy stop crying?
She brushes my hair, and tears I can see
Every time she goes away, the pain comes again.
