Broken

Fear

That is what I feel
 
Broken glass lining the streets like my own glittering tears
Catcalls behind me
Footsteps follow
 
Go away I want to scream
 
More footsteps
How many are there now 
Three? Four?
 
They surround me 
Taking away my escape
And then......
 
It is over in a few minutes
They didn't wait around
Laughing as they leave
I'm left in the alley 
 
My clothes are torn
The top they said was too provocative has been stolen
I am shivering
But not with cold
I am utterly beaten down 
Utterly shattered
 
Just another piece of broken glass
