“This poem is composed of two pieces which can be read separately or together as the words in the second piece fit into the gaps in the first. When read individually, the first is a love poem and the second is a display of fear of men. When placed together, I aimed to demonstrate how one affects the other - how past sexual assaults affect new relationships.”
