Not personal

Knocking, something is trouncing and cracking

In her deepest self, the fear is whacking!

Cutting and slapping her self-reliance

Cursing his brutality his downright defiance!


Talking, someone is speaking and screaming

Deep down in her soul, she feels herself steaming!

Cuffing and chaining her will-power

Bearing his intensity; the hardest hour!


Moaning, something is sighing and bashing

 In her body, the meek spirit with cruel is clashing!

Letting and leaving herself go mental and mad

Tolerating, promising not to get emotional and sad!


Silencing, someone is quietening and shushing

Inside her, heartlessness is continuously pushing!

Cramping and holding back, she is getting insensitive

Patting, consoling, with her own heart getting competitive!


Fading, something is disappearing and dying

Inside out, squeaking on the surface she’s lying!

Hammering and beating with her heels the floor

Failing, passing away, not virgin anymore!

I'm so fucking happy that this isn't personal dearest. One only has to read this to understand this is not a simple night of passion. I hate rape more than anything, and this poem is such a harrowing read explaining a woman's pain when she is feeling the sickness of rape. The title 'Not Virgin Anymore' is so cruel because anyone who loses theirs this way will remember it and be haunted by it forever. Some will even take their own lives because they will always be a victim, and it's too much to deal with. This is so chilling, because without spoken words you are describing in poetic detail the harrowing trauma this woman is going through. Rehmat this is so powerfully worded, and darker than your other work based on the subject it is dealing with. You have wrote this in poetic form beautifully, and this is such a chilling, haunting poem. It's one of your best yet, and no woman should ever feel the touch of rape.

Oh yes Dexter, you're right! Thanks for your kind words

Powerful write, Rehmat. The feelings you describe are those caused by a brutal beast, and should never be allowed to happen. Unfortunately, it is all too common.

Yes exactly it should never happen. Thanks for reading Hull!

A torturous read, but an excellent poem. The torment, both physical and mental, is so harrowing. Very well written!

To my eyes this has a fresh modern feel to it. Well done. Rape is such a ghastly subject it is, in my opinion, brave of you to express it, albeit (thank goodness) not from personal experience.
I have helped counsel people of both sexes who have been subjected to this brutality, and the emotional scars are much harder to heal than those physical.

Exactly I agree it's just got the modern feel. I always encounter many a cases in my country and others as well and that's so depressing. Thanks for your kind words. And I agree, these are one of the scars that can never be healed. Like ever.

The imagery, the raw power and emotions! A well written poem indeed! I have never experienced this either, but you don’t have to if you honestly think about. I think about it cause it’s the current reality. I’d rather try to be mentally prepared so as to do what I can if/when it happens. We shouldn’t be so fearful of it that we are paralyzed but it shouldn’t be in the back of our minds either. By saying we, I include men in it too. The truth is no one is immune and everyone must be on guard. I love this very much! Keep up the excellent work!

Oh true that. I really appreciate your comment. And thank you so much for taking time to read love! Keep reading and appreciating ????

What a well written and subtly descriptive piece of the violence of rape. Effective but non-exploitative, not an easy thing to do.
