The Best Poem Of Yahaya Qasim Oluwapelumi

The Rape Scar

You bereft me of my dignity
The day you stole my humanity
You plundered my maidenhead by rape
And scarred me in your rape camp

You violated me over and over
While you shoved my leftover
My corpse felt as numb as a doll
But the heartache clings to my skull

To you, it's a momentary pleasure
To me, it's anguish beyond measure
It's a delirium that makes me scream
And a flash that makes me steam

Everyday, I mutedly thrive in trauma
For the killing phobia of stigma
It's a tale of woe I could not tell
It cracks my soul, until I yell

Your apology only makes me sick
I must gather courage to speak
The pang is an indelible scar
Rapist! You shall die behind bars

(May,2020)
