I Rape

I Rape

She screams as I cut through her
but my selfishness won’t let me hear.
I slice through her unborn children
but my selfishness won’t let me see.
She stares helplessly as I kiss her
but my selfishness must assuage its thirst.
I suck on her skin,
oblivious of her screams
till she is dry and wrinkled.

She screams as I cut through green yellow skin.
Her orange flesh
excites my taste buds
while I discard her black sons
unborn and unsung.
She won’t bury her children
neither will she be buried
because her cries are silence
as her skin fills my dustbin.

One bite and another straight to the bone.
Nay!her only son;
but my selfish desire is greater than my will.
So I rape her yellow flesh
till her son is as white as the moon.

  6. In a symbolic sense, this poem could also address the issue of #child marriage#. With the young often symbolized as fruits, the seeds of posterity. Green symbolizes inexperience and inadequacy as in a greenhorn who doesn’t know jack about what he is involved in.

    My Take.

      Started d poem wth dat idea in mind but I ddnt 1t ppl 2 thnk I’m a perv. Figured d current idea was safer. Thanks @Hymar for reading, commenting n posting ur own take. I greet u.

  7. Lolz….peepz with their single-minded and straight-way of reading poetry tho’…her skin fills his dustbin, yet U still went ahead thing ’twas a lady…I had known d theme was a diversion from the outset…nice artistic work Bro!
    @hymar, nice relationship btwn d two…u’re finking…coz d truth as thought helpless as the female_child is… But d discard of d child, meant by d seeds in d fruits do not correlate after all!

    @murney_okosisi, don’t stop writing Bro!

        Welcome bro

  11. I knew it couldn’t be an actual “rape” of a human. Cos u Aint gonna be brazen enough to have put that to paper,’cept u………..u know. Nice one Bro. A nice deliberate attempt to irk the human in us with it’s graphic details ” She screams as I cut through, her but my selfishness won’t let me hear.” Could you do me a favour,expatiate the poem and include some more vivid lines.
