Reblog – Betrayal by Jayachandran Ramachandran

An amazing which goes in deep, a piece that feels like what so many things women endure….

Betrayal

She gave her soul
and her whole.

His hungry lust
groped her flesh
bit some pieces
chewed on her.

Much later
hunger satiated
he threw her out.

Her broken soul
a chewed-up
bone piece wails.

*Inspired by a Lagna Ray poem.

my love for you…

is written on my face
but you can’t seem to read me

emanates with intensity
but you are immune to feeling me

is expressed with every syllable
but you don’t know how to hear me

is right in front of you
but you are unable to see me

i must not be enough

i kept your sins sheltered within
you felt no shame, no guilt
the harm you unleashed on me
new scars, freshly laid, bloody patterns
wounds unhealing inside me always raw
the pain withered me into submission
your burden to bear by chance
my penance for choice of heart

but rage will emerge, so beware
for every injury, insult, and humiliation
there will be justice inflicted severely
bloody eye for my bloodied eye
painful welts you’ll receive from strangers
lawless games played for your ways
brutality and cruelty like i received
i’ll see you caged just like me

you made me what i am

How Dare You?

“When you went away, with you went your special face.”
Keith Garrett excerpt from When You Went Away

yes
OMFG YES

it all went away

this face
adoring you lovingly

a killer smile
appreciating your charm

these lips
so moist, waiting

bright eyes
only for you

it’s all gone now
but you’re bitching about

my…

attitude
demeanor ————– when it’s a direct consequence of your piss poor behavior
compassion

WTF DID YOU EXPECT?!?!?!?
