The Truth Of Why I’m Afraid Of Dark Alleyways

i have always been afraid

of being kidnapped

not because they
might slit my throat

or steal my wallet

but because
a strange man
waiting in his car

might lift up my cotton shirt
or whatever it is
i wear that day

place his hand on my breast

when i never wanted him to. Thought Catalog Logo Mark
