I Will Rape Thee

Poem by Kyle Shield Laster

I will rape thee-
With my savage love;
Born from the rural pot.

I will rape thee
And while I rot-
I will pray that you do not.

But, I will save thee
Because, honey,
You've needs: the sting of me...

And I will rape thee-
Because I know
Only to love and rape thee.

Topic(s) of this poem: love, obsession

    Your poems contain a compressed form of violence. Even love has a certain beastly aspect to it. In this poem, you describe savageness born from a rural pot. I beg to differ on this. A rural pot need not be an uncouth one.(Report)Reply

    I'm not sure I know what you mean by the 'rural pot'. I can't imagine it being
    a compliment to anything rural. Some people just can't stop themselves
    from walking on thin ice.

    Gosh, I can feel the obsession. Whoever the poet is portraying should really get a hold of his emotions or they will rot-in prison.(Report)Reply
