Just a parental reprimand

Girls don’t take a stand

You cast a shadow

A passing pinch on my bottom

Subtle brush-against in a crowd

You cast a shadow

Boys will be boys

Don’t dress to provoke

You cast a shadow

Just a harmless kiss

With no respect for my will

You cast a shadow

Life is all about compromise

It’s a woman’s job

You cast a shadow

Casual sniggers

Is it that time of the month?

You cast a shadow

Those shadows grow

Devour me whole

Batter my soul

And when I scream

Confused you ask

What’s all the fuss

Rochelle wanted us to write fiction based on her Friday Fictioneers photo prompt. But somehow the eerie shadow inspired this outpour. Fiction? If only!
