Screaming Silence - Poem by Wendy Bureau

An unspoiled virgin love
White orchid innocence
Precious, pure, youthful
Sacrificed, no consequence

Taken so mercilessly
A ruthless compassion
Degraded, violated
By lust's dirty passion

A man of vulgar heart
Cold, refined, twisted
A magician of the mind
If ever, one existed

Seductive lies, unleashed
Constricting, as if bound
Crystal tears forever stain
Sedated, crying, without sound

    I hear your cry, i feel your pain, you gave all, to obtain
    I'm so sorry! for your virgin heart, I'm sorry you were torn apart
    I'm sorry for being a male, lies, deceit an endless tale
    not all men think this way, believe me pet! should mans life fail
    don't loose your trust, think of the best, you've learned your lesson like all the rest
    I'm no stranger to the broken heart, I've lived a life that's torn apart
    keep writing, let us hear you voice, write your poetry! let us rejoice
    regards Bob
