Little Girl

I understand that you couldn’t prevent it from happening
I even understand that you couldn’t fix it.

What I don’t understand, is why you never noticed I changed,
I cried out in so many ways.

Did you not notice my innocence was ripped a way?
Could you not see I was broken?

I turned from white as snow to black as night,
and you didn’t even blink an eye.

My heart was shattered,
my world demolished

I was alone…and I was scared
yet you never showed up.

You left me to fight my own way,
while you looked away.

Weren’t you suppose to kiss the wound away?
Weren’t you suppose to pick me up and tell me it will be okay?

I never had your support,
and your love was needed.

I was just a little girl,
and even then you couldn’t find a way…


Natasha Alexander

Writer, always Wife and Mother first. Perfect is overrated, I am flawed and yet loved. Now that I don’t chase perfection, I can chase my dreams. I have completed a "Write a Novel" course in 2015 through S.A. Writers’ College and passed with a distinction. I also completed the Copy-Editing and Proof-reading course through them in March 2016. My first Manuscript of 60 000 words has been written and currently seeking a publisher. I have been writing poetry since I was 14 and the reason/inspiration behind all my writing is a stand against women abuse. It is a cause that I hold close to heart. Something that started as an outlet for feelings too ghastly to speak about has turned into my passion.
