The Depth of Grace

You lie in a heap outside

The safe-guard of social

Convention.


With skin the same colour

As your thoughts. You

Bleed into the gutter.


-How Did You Lose Your Grace?-


Multitudes of People Blur

Passed You, You Wish It

Was peaceful Here.


You Held Your Face and

Cried as I Raped You,

Now you're all Grown.


-When did You Fall From Grace?-


You've Forfeit Flight,

Your Wax Has Melted.

You're Drownin' Boy...


You're Drownin'

    wow. First of all, just let me say that this is an amazing poem! As always you've captured intense (almost inexpressable) feelings in words, which is a major, major talent. The word "raped" was a bit unexpected... I know what I got out of this but I want your explanation! What do you mean???
