Cock: The Little Girl That Frown


I'm that little girl that frowns
Not that I so love to do a-slow-burn
Situations melts-down the cold tears even of a clown

10years old, men twice my age
Harass and rattle my cage
I wish I was brave or better sage!

I might cloud-up,
Giving a sigh; 'talk to my hand'
When you innocently say 'hi'

I have been abused; my parents know not
It is only imperfection that understands
Knit-brows, I look-black

Steadily, I give the-evil-eye
A bait, fagged out in their hook
So many questions; what a bad luck

The sound in the word
... Is as heavy as the word:
'Prick'... I wish I was a no 'she'

Sad sex stories
Might cause families cold war...
So I digest guilts of crimes I indeed not begin

Expression expresses itself
I frown, maybe it might scare them away
Please bear with me

Poem of the Day

poet Robert Frost

Some say the world will end in fire,
Some say in ice.
From what I've tasted of desire
I hold with those who favor fire.
But if it had to perish twice,
