You Made Me Feel Funny

i trusted you

when you said you'd take care of me

and you'd never make me cry

but you took my little hand

and made me touch you

you made me feel funny

 

i loved you

'cause i was only five

and you took my little hand

and walked me up the stairs

to play a baby game

that you said i would like

but you made me feel funny

 

i believed you

when you told me it's alright

and you took off all your clothes

and you took off all my clothes

and you hurt me and you hurt me

and you made me feel funny

 

i tried not to tell

like you told me to

but i could hardly walk

and my mama said what's wrong

and i'm sorry you're in jail

 

but i trusted you

and you made me feel funny

A touchy subject (no pun intended) which you have covered well.

A deep and insightful piece of poetry Jo.

May you find here a safe place of support and comfort.

Poetry has the gift of healing written all over it.

Your words will reach out to many who will gain strength from them.

Write on.
Paul.
