Discarded Damsel

by Debbie   May 13, 2007


I stood
awfully appalled
as he grimaced
in putrid contempt-
fire gone gray
in his ardent heart.
And,
by reverting and averting,
he sniggered
like a sardonic steed.
Wincing
as he warded me off
like chaffs driven away
by the gnashing wind...

    I love to read poems and find their meaning, This one is the saddest and most appaling to my heart.
    I see a young Damsel caught in Slave trading,
    and the Dispicable bartering going on between buyer and seller. A price is set and The Damsel is purchased for his own lustful satisfaction, snickering, cold hearted as he carts away his new Sad Love Toy,
    Like chaffs driven away
    by the gnashing wind

    Peace and Blessings

    Beautiful, open piece of writing. The topic is clear, but the message and the tone are both quite open to the readers' interpretation. Wonerful job.
