The Midnight Poet


IS IT FAIR TO HAVE SOMEONE STIFLE THERE CREATIVE GENIUS SIMPLY BECAUSE OTHERS DO NOT FIND IT APPEALING?


"Something Worse"

It has never happened to me

But I do know of two or three

I do believe I can comprehend to some degree

Please before I go on correct me if Iím wrong but there is something worse than rape

The nerve of me

Let me continue you just might agree

Webster says "it is the forcing of another person to submit to sex acts, seizing or carrying off with force; abusive improper treatment"

What, the taking away of ones pride, dignity, and in some cases their purity

Though not physically let me explain the raping of me

One of my lifelong dreams was to find that one person to spend forever with and multiply our love

You changed the plan

Deep down you hated every man

Damn, I believed in you, least expected you

I submitted to what I thought was your true love

Perhaps you said, "I do" to a mirror

Now and for a sometime to come I canít get over what you have done

Similar would you not agree

For some they get this feeling for it was someone they knew or believed in and least expected

For others the ones closest to them did not believe and blamed the victim

Finally the laws, need I say more?

Just the same I stand by the title of this poem

There is something worse than rape

Its name BETRAYAL
