You Were So Good

by

Geneva Becker

It's cold, it's so cold in here,
I told my teddy bear...he didn't answer.
I remember warmth,
in a time before you touched me in that way.
Touching me and touching me until I was truly touched.
Didn't you say that your were going to help me?
No wait, you said help yourself...to me?
Not unlike a piece of meat left out on the table overnight...
you consumed me.
But I WILL NOT be a part of you!
I refuse.
When I was six and I refused, you didn't listen.
You're bold, you're bold when near,
like a cancer.
You were so good, you said...I didn't answer.
