I curse the deed that inspired it. You address an issue that is timeless. The only way to put a stop to such abuse is to bring it into the spotlight. You do that so beautifully with your talent as a poet… surely this rates as a highest and best use of the pen. Hugs, sarah LikeLike Hi Kerri This is startling, poignant and brilliantly written. I think you handle this personal and very painful subject matter with intensity and truth. Your voice shines in this piece echoing how the victim feels and the need to close it out with always recognizing the horrible aspect of his character and behavior. These lines are riveting and haunt the reader with their ferocity but also the tenacity on the part of the narrator to survive. knuckles like knobs, skin on the palms winter-stiff, scraping the curb of my emerging breast, trampling a print through the opening Y of my thighs, my eyelids squeezed tight as if slamming on brakes, as if I would hear the screech of a train stopping. I agree with Sarah, this I poetry to be celebrated for its truth and tesitimony as well as the courage it take to write. Thank you for sharing this. Hope all is well with you and yours in these frigid temps God Bless you and your family. Take care wendy LikeLike Thank you so much Sarah and Wendy and the people that spent time reading my poem. Wendy, It has been crazy, brutally cold here. Luckily, we’ve had little snow this year which I am thankful for. I guess it all went to the eastern USA. But today it hit 30F and I’m doing a happy dance! It’s all relative. My best to everyone. Kerri LikeLike what a powerful ending and very good rhythm LikeLike Dear Kerri This is really something. There’s something incredibly skilful in creating outrage in the reader without relying on outrage in the language … …and you’ve done it right here. Dramatic, powerful, sensitive and eloquent poetry. I’m quite awed. Best wishes, Mark. LikeLike Thank you so much, Kallie and Mark! I appreciate you taking the time. take care, Kerri LikeLike The almost introspective tone of these lines makes them hit home with the impact of a sledgehammer. A difficult, difficult subject, tackled in a manner that says more than a million headlines every could. Bravo! Douglas. LikeLike Kerri, I’ve read this several times and I am crying and cursing. Powerful,powerful writing. Hugs, Maryse LikeLike Kerri I applaud your bravery to share this with the Pub.. Sadly to say I am more than familiar with the contents of this write.
