Captured - Poem by Sofia Papadimitri

Stood in front of you
With a fashionable smile
Wore all covers
Posing as beauty…

Like a hunted deer
Free, but targeted
Your eyes on me
Saving your best shot…

Did I fit in the square?
Those four angles
My four limits
How could I dare?


You still stare
Through the glass
Like there wasn’t
Another side…

Flash, and I see
The lens reflects
The true nakedness.
A hit target…

In your hands
A real model
Worthy of that shot
Now lying, on shiny paper.
