Not a Damn Word

K.T Williams

It’s been a week

I still cannot rid my lips of you

They taste like you

I feel you

your hands along my waist

But you are not here

I had waited so long

I should have waited longer

You are what I thought I wanted

But I was wrong


Every night I scrub my skin raw

Trying to wash your touch

and taste from my body

Just when I think I’ve scrubbed it all away

I smell you on my favorite shirt

It’s drenched in you

In the smooth smell of your skin

The natural and earthy scent

I cannot escape


Every corner I turn I hesitate

Will I see your face

Will you be the next person I see

My body flinches at the thought


You didn’t do anything

You didn’t hit me

Or yell at me

Or rape me

You acted on human wants


You made sure

To ask me if I was uncomfortable


But I didn’t say a word

Not a damn thing

    Turning towards every corner you hesitate with rubbing of every night. Waiting for longer time amazes mind.

    This is a powerful write! You are so descriptive and I'm so sorry that it didn't work out for you! But it is a well written write. Hope you heal soon!
