The Storm, The Rapist And The Getaway - Poem by Mr. Poetic

Torrid raindrops fall outside my window pane
The sound of the thunder slowly drives me insane

The moonlight stretches across the sky
The raindrops glow in the mist and resemble the tears I cry

The clouds form and cover the twinkle of the stars
As a young girl is brutally raped in the backseat of a car

The storm gets louder and lightning strikes down
As the young girl is left bleeding in an alley across town

Hopefully the night will pass and I'll see the sun
But as the night progresses the madness has just begun

I run outside in the rain and scream and shout
Screamimg up to God and asking what life is about

The attacker of the young girl is making his escape
He does not see me because he is blinded by the guilt of rape

He is driving fast, speeding down the street
Little did I know our paths would meet

As I continue to shout to the Lord my misery and pain
I am struck by a speeding car in the rain

Now I lay bleeding and my heart won't last another day
As the rapist speeds down the road making his getaway
