Laid to bare

I am laid to bare
Legs spread uncaring
Steal my breath my dear
In between buildings
An alley of bins
Your dreams filled sweetly
Taking your pieces
All my dignity
Splayed upon the streets
Never shall I be
Running on empty
Dear girl set me free
Call my mother please
Should she recognize
Fall to her knees, cries
Send for my father
Why do I bother
Uncaring you see
I am laid to bare
Passerby’s gawking
Looking intently
At this faceless girl
Do you wonder if
Life was far too much
Sending her backwards
Spiralling empty
No one fucking cares
She’s dead in the streets
