    Broken and empty
    sensations of blue
    searching for answers
    a void seldom renewed
    her young life a puzzle
    many pieces, no fit
    looking for pleasure
    with each man she sleeps
    a starving vessel, with no relief
    she ponders her life
    asking what does it mean?
    her craving for love
    is ravenous by nature
    seeking to devour
    yet she wallows in guilt
    knowing this behavior
    is destructive, she cries
    alone is her solace
    herself she relies
    searching in others
    for a place to call home
    or a man to acknowledge
    the love shes never known
    like a porcelain doll
    shes fragile, a beauty rare
    but lost in her chaos
    searching for a father
    in each man......

    a profound acknowledgment of sadness...

    i've seen this. little girls who never knew love...thinking that love is defind by sex...using her body to erase the neglect she has always known...willing to be with anyone just so that she don't have to be ALONE.

    Baller......

    I have seen it too....
    there is so much more inner pain
    in some, that is hidden
    because of the behavior.....
    thanks for the read

    Thanks, for the read.....
    young girls really need their daddys
    they will always search
    sometimes not even realizing
    the void is that love they never
    received.....I know women like that....

    Girls in search of........becoming women in search of....giving birth to daughters who continue the search and so on. Sad poem, sad reality.
