PAUSE

I am in the middle of this sentence

The pause takes your shape

Should I be grateful to you?

For misunderstanding me

In a way that made me look

for my ย self ?

Guilty girl in the dungeon

She was sexy

She hated the fleshy outgrowths

On her body that converted friends

Brothers in to pure men

His stickiness between

Her shapely thighs

Too much human smell

Stifled in a struggle

Was that love or hate?

Was that duty or choice?

It felt like someone with insatiable hunger ate her up

If I have to teach one lesson

It would be never love ever again

    1. Duty or choice is a conflict many face at the altar of love in many countries, since the wants and needs of the woman are not respected. And it is almost the norm. Men who do think they respect her choices are so overwhelmed by their own magnanimity , they want gratitude !

  1. I know what you mean. I watched men push booze on my mother and grope her from when I was supposed to be too young to see. I have always been here and am ancient. Then at 18 I was raped by a junkie psych nurse as an involuntary patient in a mental health facility. I rarely have ever had sexual relationships since. I have some beautiful and fantastic girlfriends who have been beyond angelic in my healing. I am a warrior. Sex is not everything or maybe we need redefine our relationship and how we impregnate the universe. Karma is everything. Women tell me I am 28. I look that old apparently. I can still play a game of footy with blokes half my age. I stopped drinking 17 years ago or more and I meditate twice a day. I have stopped dirty cops and vicious bouncers. Like grandfather Coyote… i love a laugh. I care deeply for good people and their rights. Some pretty putrid attempts at warriors lately. They took everything from me ๐Ÿ˜…

    1. Thank you for being so forthright.
      Marital rape is not acknowledged as rape in India.
      Men can get crazily possessive of a beautiful wife and curb her at every stage and finally bed is also arena … should never be…. and having by standers who caused it deliberately so as to get their hands on the woman…. is definitely bad karma.
