put your finger on the time when it all began

sex was always a form of cardinal sin

a virgin bleeds from holy matrimony on her wedding night

to some it's a sign of evil and sin to others it's a form of ritual

the smell of clotted and repressed nights of desire and wanted pleasure

freeze the air above leaving her breathless fighting for life

covered from head to toe with only a tiny hole for punishment

the basis all covered rules set and passed down from generation to generation 

forbidden thoughts corrode and manifest in her sponge like mind

absorbing all the pain and brutal tongue lashings by the mouth of her master

scared to look him in the eyes she walks with her head down 

tripping on regrets of things she'll never know

a vision of beauty lost amongst a cowards faith

controlled by a politcal mindless mind of a mad man

freedom is just a word she'll never know until the day she dies

yet we watch this on t.v at night and don't even batter our eyes

realize that this is our sister our mother our daughter

silently pleading for your help open your hearts and your minds

and don't let it fade away

    I can see your a femenist but I'm not sure what you'd want to happen? Perhaps that less importance is placed on virginity? Intercourse is a healthy and normal part of life and should be viewed as such and then there would be less "crazy" people hurting each other! Light & Love..perhaps you'd like my verse The Sowing

    I do not know when it was, that society and religious society became so afraid of the sexuality of women. Or was it just men who became afraid.... There is so much history to undo, the tyranny of Christianity and The Muslim, this original sin falling at the feet of Eve... this idea of possession.. once, long ago, the sexual, was exulted by both men and women as a connection to a spiritual world... today that exultation is mere pornography.. what have they stolen from us ?

    Ah Brandy....this bleeds with compassion and truth. Its a sad fact of life isn't it? So many turn a blind eye because its easier than having to feel and hurt for someone else. I wish the whole damn world would open their eyes. Love Christie

    this was a very interesting piece, and very honest, religion and the world often clash on their views of things, but relgigion can at times be to man made, we can never learn if we are restricted, never know if everything that's changed is told to us to be a sin. the wrold is for exploring when each individual is ready :) i likes this piece a lot. great write, my many compliments. <3 madison
