The Selkie Charmed

 

We offered love

And you took sex

 

We were wondrously

Outfitted, loving

Shapes and colors to

Show the world

My feeling

 

You removed every

Thing to get to flesh

And to the bones

Underneath:

 

Did you think this was

Affection?

 

It was abduction,

And we never again

Felt rescued or

Recovered

 

We left home

You took us instead

Into a somber place,

And in the way

That matters most

We are still locked

Away
