When I Was Touched Poetry Lyrics

I Always Had A Wall Around Me
To Protect Myself From Unknown Creatures
Though The Eyes That Scan My Body
Always Had Some Known Features. . .

Carrying An Over full Bag In The Bus
I Saved Myself From Strangers
Or Wearing Oversized Shirts
Were Ways To Protect Myself From The Worse. . .

That Day Coming Down The Stairs
He Helped Me And Hugged Me Tight
He Kissed My Lips And I Trembled With Fright
I Wish I Could Run But I Lost My Sight. . .

I Was 10. . .

I Was 10 And He Was 70
I Walked Bare Feet That Day On A Hot Empty Street. . .

Then I Was 14 And I Love To Skate
I Wish I Could Speed Through The Ring
But I Was Left In A Daze
Trying To Balance Myself
I Felt Someone Trying To Lift Me
I Felt Some Hands On My Thighs
I Wish I Could Scream
But My Lungs Failed Me
I Was 14 And He Was 46
He Was My Coach
And He Had To Teach. . .

Coming Back From College
I Got Late That Day
It Was Raining So Heavily And I Could Just Pray
That My Parents Don't Panic I Took A Rick
As I Got Out In Front Of The Gate
I Felt A Prick. . .

The Rickshaw Puller Put His Hand On My Tiny Breast
I Felt Now How Now I Wish I Could Cut His Neck
As I Ran Inside To The Shower I Kept Scrubbing Myself
To Get Rid Of That Touch
And Again I Blamed Myself. . .

Now It Was A Summer Break
We Were Happy To Be Away
And I Could Play With My Cousins All Through The Day
After Hours Of Fun I Ran Inside To The Bed
And Crashed To Get An Afternoon Nap. . .

But As I Shut My Eyes To Sleep
I Felt Some Hands Moving Under My Skirt
But For God's Sake You're My Uncle
I Wish I Could Say Go No Further
But I Didn't. . .

I Just Shut My Eyes
I Was 16 And He Was 50. . .

Whenever We're Ever Molested And Touched
By People Known Unknown Or People I Could Trust
I Wish I Could Scream
Tell Someone That My Trust Was Breached. . .

But I Did None As I Was Less
Or Just A Teen
My Uncles My Teachers Or Strangers
Could I Ask You This. . ?

What Made You Think
That You Could Touch Me Or Feel Me
Before Doing This Did You Even Think. . ?

When You Touch Someone So Young
You're Hurting Them For Life
With Wounds That Never Heal
And Leaving Them With Fright
Being Touched Or Held Too Close. . .

Because It Takes Years To Know The Difference
Between Being Molested And Loved. . .

And I Still Need An Answer. . .

Why I Was Touched. . ?
