Territory


Territory

It is only when
You come inside
That you try to claim
Territory
That is rightfully mine

  1. Oh, wow........that is a perspective we don't often consider...........well done. You made me stop and think. (I'm old. I can't think and type at the same time, lol.) So happy you wrote for the prompt.

    1. Thank you. It's a wonderful prompt and with the news these days I felt that I needed to speak up in some way. I ended up paring my thoughts down to the barest elements. My body is my territory. I choose to defend it.

  2. Things do work best (or at least they should) with clearly set boundaries, and after letting people know what they can and can not do with is very clearly ours.

    1. Exactly. You have to know which lines can and cannot be crossed.

  3. This is incredibly evocative and on point. A woman should always be able to defend her territory as nobody has the right to trespass without permission. ❤️

  5. Well crafted and not a wasted word in here. Anything imposed on my body without my consent is a violation. It really is that simple.

  6. Boundaries, they are necessary protected space, and when they're breached
    a woman has every right to fight back.

  7. NO ONE, no one has the right to tell me or any woman what to do with HER body. Thank you.

  8. There are some borders you cannot cross without an invitation (even vampires know that)
