LOVE HAS RAPED ME!!!

 

Love has raped me in my prime
Catching me like a drizzling rain ready to fall
on it prey,
She has stolen away my unripened time,
Shed away my precious blood of hope and dreams,
Which flows  out from the streams underneath my rock.

A little boy,was I
Devouring tantalising tastes of my earthen eves,
Blinded was I to love,
As she plucked away my virginity,
Harvested my dignity,
Buried my gruesome gentility,
And left me to wallow in polished pain.

She raped me so hard,
With no care nor fear not minding my tear,
I saw her vein so strain and scary,ready to tear me apart,
"Please don't" was the faint voice that echoed,
But "NO"
she said,
My hands are in the plough,
Never going back.

Ooo Ooo Ooo ,blood was gushing out,
From the cisterns of my careless calabash,
It flows still from the river Nile to river Jordan, 
My legs have been wrinkled,
Hands twinkled,
From love's wicked action,
I cried out for help even in my dumbness !
But what shall I do 
When love has raped me ?

Like a lifeless log
was I,
My whitish garment has been strained,
Soaked in  rainbow wheel of blood in the garden of Eden.

Oh I am now
a widow without a window to shelter her tomorrow !
A young widow,who knows not the path of womanhood !
A young widow who knows not the point of her breast !
A young widow who dreams of her unborn  and unknown child,
Yet slumbers to her dreams !
A young widow who knows not the cry of a baby,
the hunger and fears of a baby,
Who knows not the song that soothes the ear,
A young widow
whose destiny has been raped by love cruelty.

Still in my pain
bounded by chain,
I will curse and send my blood that flows from my valley
to love !
My tears shall be the rugged rain that shall tear up her veins !
Eden roots shall be her rootless route !
My fresh  blood,
So calm and innocent,
Shall be the water thou shall drink from Nile !
I will swear by the innocence of my mistake,
Never to draw lines of 
trust,
understanding,
infatuation,
promises,
and hope of a better delivery !
For now shall I abort the planted pod of fear,
Plant my own seeds of courage,
and deliver a future of a true love
Because thou hast raped me !
