Not a letter of Love

They took out their pens
And wrote on her body
Not a letter of love
But of lust
Her fragrance subdued
By flowing stinks of liquor
Her cries of pain muffled
By their lecherous jeers
Brains on their loins
They devastated a budding life
And when their inebriated selves
Left in search for their next conquest
Her shame her only companion
In a world where man will be man
And the powerful will rise
In righteous indignation to defend
Good names of the perpetrators
Victim she is not, asked for it
Others will say with a smirk
As if a rose bud
Resplendent in all of nature’s glory
Has the power to prevent one
From plucking her out of the tree
The letter of lust is for her to keep
In perpetual indignity

Poetry is my passion. I am not a methodical writer. I have no set topics to write about. What I feel, perceive, think about, I will like to share in this blog. I open my mind to the world. Like the weather, sometimes my poems are cloudy, sometimes stormy. I always like to see sunshine streaming through the leaves of trees, so I hope I can share some of those sunshine with my readers.

    1. Thanks Drew.
      Let me check why it became black in black. I had written the poem in Evernote, copied and pasted to WordPress. Preview on my cell phone did not show up black on black. I am not fond of WordPress mobile app at all but if I wait for to get to my desk, I may end up not writing. Maybe I should stop posting from my cell phone.

      1. I use cell phone because I like the flexibility of swift key’s multilingual key board.
        Thanks for your words of support.
        I updated the post on my dashboard and sent a note to you. Please let me know if it is OK now.

      2. When you copy paste from somewhere to WordPress, you should select your content and click on “clear formatting” otherwise WP automatically picks up the font type, color and size of the location you copied from. That could be the reason this happened.
