Treasure Island

Lucifera Santez

(4th feb / Belize)

Rape


Bruised, battered, broken and scared,
I lie on concrete,
My clothes torn,
My virginity burned,
For your pleasure,
On the altar of lust and deceit,
Unmoving, barely breathing,
my flesh a used commodity,
sullied are your hands from my blood,
filled I am with your repulsive seed.
My body holds no pleasure for you now,
I have been used and violated again and again,
You will dump me on some deserted road,
My survival, a constant pain,
I had few dreams too you know,
I too had planned my future,
Oh the dreams I had seen,
Of a loving husband and few adorable kids.
Now who will accept me,
When I am no longer the desired thing,
Who will want me?
When I have nothing to offer,
when for my future spouse,
my innocence wont sing,
you see how you have ruined my life,
I can no longer be mother,
Nor anyone's wife.
So yes I cry, even when there are no sobs,
No tears, no whimpers,
I cry for every thing I lost,
When you abused me,
When you gave me my treacherous fall,
Lying on floor,
When everything hurts,
I see you driving away,
Whistling under your breath,
For you its normal,
You would trick someone else tomorrow,
She too would plead to spare her,
Spare her these sorrows,
But you would do it again,
Throwing her body somewhere,
Pleasuring yourself,
While the newspapers would run the story,
Story of another rape.

    A very real conveyance of a of truth not often spoken enough. I would invite you to read my poem called God's Schedule as it deal with the very same topic but from a different angle. Thanks for sharing this fine piece, Allan Gerard~ (Report) Reply

    I think you spoke a brutal truth. This poem disturbed me. It is very very good poetry about a horrid event. I can't say any more except you made a picture I didn't want to see. (Report) Reply

    A truly blunt and powerful write. The tragedy is that perpetrators of such acts gloat over their horrendous acts.
    I have also written about the fate of such a victim in my poem 'Cry of a soul'. (Report) Reply

    A brilliant write Lucifera, blunt and powerful, telling It how it is. The penalty for rape should be castration. (Report) Reply

  • Khairul Ahsan (10/18/2013 10:09:00 AM)

    So realistically you have portrayed the victim's picture, as if we are the eye witness to this ghastly scene. You have poured your heart into it to make it sound so real. You get 10/10 from me.
    This is a poem of high standard. (Report) Reply

So we'll go no more a-roving
So late into the night,
Though the heart still be as loving,
And the moon still be as bright.

For the sword outwears its sheath,
