Libya; obey

.

I walked for miles ending at a camp

My legs throbbing with pain from all the cramp

The sun scolded me with its piercing rays

Nothing could ever keep that heat at bay

Others famished, spread all around the place

What did we do, what was our mistake

Looking for some help, water for my thirst

I came across some men, seemed nice at first

After time on the road, hard to give trust

All want something in return, that’s a must

One held out a bottle inviting me

I begged on the dirt, I was so thirsty

Arms stretched out clasping the bottle so dear

I felt a blow, ringing now in my ears

As I fell to the ground, helpless I lay

I closed shut my eyes, I could only pray

They would do as they pleased, never enough

They would laugh and snigger, always so rough

No one ever helped or came to my aid

I would be killed if I didn’t obey

Reaching for the water, just before me

Yanked by one of them, back up to my feet

He looked at me, with his gold teeth smile

His breath was putrid, it smelt just vile

Placing a collar, I tried to resist

Showing me his knife, before a small kiss

Led away like a dog, I dared not scream

I wished I could wake up from this bad dream

What was next for me, pissing myself

I wish I were dead, that’s what I felt

Making a masterpiece

The artist waited for her to appear

Before him she stood, feeling a bit queer

First time ever had she modelled at all

Little did she know she would have a ball

She took off her gown, fell down to the floor

Exposing her flesh like never before

A velvet rug lay before her in wait

Feeling its softness on her knees was great

Liberty she felt, in every respect

To be painted in art, what an aspect

Emotions laid bare, for all to be seen

Captured in one moment, never obscene

An exquisite feeling left wanting more

The artist’s mind, a depth to be explored

Their masterpiece, becomes a work of art

Something so pure, to come from the heart

Newborn

Time slow, painful, how long it must have been

Waiting for them, all this new and obscene.

Hours pass by, comfort never ever so bad

Until the time, no return now, it’s mad.

Unknown future, as they welcome one more

The tears and emotion, she is so raw.

Pityful noise, defenseless as can be

Tiny, covered in white, is now so free.

Heart to warm skin, feeling of her, serene

Slumber to her warm breast, you can now dream.

Poor boy

.

Youths in the street, jostling all together

They laugh, they joke, hoodies any weather.

Phones out watching videos they have made

A boy, the last victim whom they had preyed.

Their last attack, fatal, a poor young boy

A pack, circled, to see blood spilt oh joy.

Grounded surrounded, begging for some help

Calling for mum, he cannot help himself.

His eyes, such fear, knowing he’s gonna die

The last, final gasp, as life leaves his eyes.

Please help

I feel so empty, I cannot describe

It’s a mess, this thing that I call a life.

It’s eating away at me, black inside

Destroying me, controlling as I slide.

Down to the blackest depths, clouds all around

Impossible to see or make a sound.

Coughing out loud, I’ve suffered for so long

Crimson fills my hands, something must be wrong.

Pointless, destitute, feelings that one has

Exhaling smoke, cold reflecting on past.

Friends, what are they? Absent in time of need

Always there for a handout, with their greed.

Unneeded scum, better off that I’m dead

At least I have no shame, hanging my head.
