Sold – Eric (EDC Writing)

Looks an angel’s gift,

pain a demon’s twist.

Beauty bare for taking,

scars lie deep and weeping.

Soul left on the bedpost,

body sold be done quick.

A two post Wednesday – ‘Sold’ here and ‘Old Ground’ over at mine.

  2. My first impression is this was about sex workers but the more I reread it, felt like it read more like a betrayal of youth such as experienced in child abuse. Whichever meaning brought you to write this, well done, Eric. 🙂
