Is This Love

SAMSUNG DIGITAL CAMERAHis hands…
His hands all over me, in me
Always gentle, tender
At the start.

His lips
What are these things he whispers
All these things he wants to do

He says I make him so happy
That he loves me deeply
I don’t know…

Is this love

I need him
I need him to love me
But

I don’t want this
I don’t want him to touch me

I don’t want him on me
I love his scent
And I hate it

The sounds he makes
His pot belly
Oh

…he’s coming

Where is she
Why doesn’t she stop him
She must know
Why doesn’t she help me

Mama,
Biko!
Please make Father stop…
