The Rape

Preyed upon her like, a Dog in heat
Like,... A mammal attacked in the wild
You, violated the sanctity of her home,
Stole her from her child;
And, left him all alone.

As deaf ears fell on those
Who heard her pleas for help,
And, no one saw a thing:
To some abandoned, vacant field
Forced to go

Exposed and Abused, for you to view
How would you like it, if no one asked you?
As you drew power,
From the rise of your erection
And, entered your Victim, without a right

Because, of her fighting and screams:
You  blackened both her eyes, To silence
Her whimpering to far, To be heard

You shattered her Spirit,
Like,... Broken Glass
And, she never felt you-
But, the dirt & gravel
Beneath, her bare back
          She never felt you.

Paralyzed, to a state of shock
Beaten and left for dead
To later be found walking a distant freeway
Naked But, Alive
She is still yet, ALIVE.


(This poem is based on actual events.)
(Let me know what you think)

I thought you did an excellent job writing this, I did not know what to expect when opening it, but see you did a real professional job with it. You get the point across very well.

As L.D. says, professional job. What a horrific thing to happen to anyone. You express the horror and terror well.

Love and hugs,

In the point of view of someone who has been in that situation, there is too much hate and fear for us to know what follows, and nothing happens to matter after that.  It was a long time ago, but thank you, you have given me hope.  Your poetry always seems to do that for me.

 Hope,

PrincessPoet,

This is very well writen about a difficult subject. I am often amazed by the level of cruelty people inflict upon each other. My wife is an ER nurse and she deals with this as well. Thank you for posting this.

yes.. a horrific happening, so well expressed... mm.. I wish that everyone had kind souls, so that no human, could do unto another such vile insane acts, such as this.. such a shame, that there are even a few such sick, demented, shameless, cruel people, in this world, who would inflict this upon another being.

PrincessPoet~

The acts - defiling.
The sheer strength to survive is what saved this woman's life.
May our compassion flow for her healing.
Any monster who attacks like this should be found and dealt with swiftly ... not sit on his laurels in an air conditioned cell.

Thank you for sharing.

When things like this happen, it makes me sad to be alive...ashamed that people treat others like this.



Thanks for writing it...it was good to read.

Tough subject Princess,you handled it well.
Justice swift and sure, rarely happens.

I'm sorry this had to happen to you.  I know the pain you speak of very well.  It is something I have lived with for 4 years now, and it is still hard to feel normal.  I just let my story out in here not 2 months ago--I'm glad we both shared our rage in a circle of friends.  --Jamie

You expressed this poem well, Princess. Though I am a male, I know exactly how this would feel, 'cause one of my female friends also experienced the same event you have described in your poem. I noticed the usage of capital letters in certain words within the poem. They are all used in the right places to emphasize the points you want to express. The last word 'ALIVE' is especially effective, since for a girl who underwent such tragic event, being alive would be more without dignity than being deceased...



 Sorrow is the starting point of happiness. Without sorrow, a man can never realize the true meaning of happiness.

Hi
I'm sorry for posting a late reply. I was tunned by it as I can relate it a bit. It's a ghastly one. But gaining the strength to live again , putting behind everything, thats great. You made it lady. Live happily forever.
'Male monsters' must be killed and if I'm given a chance my first one should be a very close one. I hate to see him,hear him.

I had forgotten reading this Princess and to continue....am amazed at the number of women even in this small circle here in the pub, who have endured this experience...agree with Marge's monster line entirely.
Well worth a second read for the poem and the responses.

I agree with all the comments above,I can only add how stange it seems to me, that extreme experiences good and bad forces great art into expression.

PP thats what this poem is, great art.
