She sits, twirling a piece of her hair
Reading the comments
In her adult picture gallery
“Gorgeous tits!”
“I wish I could lick you!”

Smiling she replies,
“Thank you, but I’m just average”
“Really? You’re making me blush”
As she moves from the computer
Taking more pictures

She can’t get enough
Of the horny attention
The men who want to fuck her
The bi girls who admire her body
Is she the best on the site?

Click! Another picture
Deleted! It makes her look fat
She takes another,
From a different angle, softer light
A cheeky nipple, erect

Uploading, she bites her lip
Waits moments for a comment
“Can I see your pussy?”
“I’m playing with myself over you!”
Encouraged she takes more

What if someone she knows sees her?
How will she explain
Nude pictures, rude comments
Even the odd dildo video
Quite the little porn star

Deep down she knows
They look at others,
Say things to see the bits they want
For a quick fix of cyber fun
But it boosts her self esteem, for now.

Hi Lisa! So that's what goes on!! Great observation without judgement. The last line is very poignant and exactly what this piece is about, I think!

I enjoyed the read and the very vivid images.

This is a stong poem, with a vivid sense of character. I agree with the effectiveness of your non-judgemental point of view. There is a real sense of naughtiness in the fact that this is a private action that those close to her seem to know nothing about.

I like 'she bites her lip / Waits moments for a comment'. This really ties the woman's sense of arousal with her need for attention, her anticipation for feedback.

I agree - the quality that comes over is, as Joanie says, great observation without judgement. There are some who would tut-tut and frown at something like this, but there's more than enough empathy and humour in your poem to give them pause. I like the last line, which is one of those closing lines that makes us read the poem again, and colours the second reading slightly. It makes us more sympathetic, we take her more seriously.

That is powerful stuff and I loved

She can’t get enough
Of the horny attention
The men who want to fuck her
The bi girls who admire her body
Is she the best on the site?

which emphisises so well that this is about her needs not theirs and the question of whether she is the best on the site which plays nicely into the last line. The curse of low self esteem...

So glad I didn't offend anyone here. I wrote it and wasn't sure about uploading it, but did so during a 'brave' moment.

Thank you all for the positive comments, and for interpreting the poem as it was meant.

Hi Lisa
Sorry to be so late to respond.

There's nice interaction between the girly-innocent hair twirling at the beginning and what's going on.

Have been trying to read this for days - but, I only have access at the library just now & they censored this, by blocking it. Tut!
Too late to add anything useful, I can only agree with all the compliments paid so far. I'm not sure I'd say I 'enjoyed' it, but I mean that as a compliment.....I became involved in it and felt I'd been given a real insight into some of the whys and wherefores of on-line activity; ultimately, very sad and deeply affecting.
