BETRAYAL (From my journal "OUTSIDE LOOKING IN")
What is it that makes me weep and shreds my heart into pieces?
Why is it that even now, the pain yet still releases
Memories of long ago, the hatred never ceases--
Uncles doing the nasty with their gullible little nieces.
What is it that makes me cringe and hide myself inside?
Why is it the pangs of you still deep within reside?
Memories, the scenes played out in that darkened countryside--
My shame, my tears, your disrespect--coital genocide.
What is it that makes me sore and bitter towards the rest?
Why is it that going without, I love more than detest?
Memories, the vows we made, I gave you all my best--
Daggers of deceit still lie, deep buried in my chest.
Incest, rape, infidelity--
three ways of saying Betrayal.
the ultimate road to celibacy.
