Before....

Before....

A Poem by Gee
"

Simple words.

"
Dawns light would bring regrets
whys and self loathing,
but no thought of this now.
Raw, dirty, drunken sex,
a feeling of being wanted, needed,
if only as a receptacle for his seed
was reason enough to share his bed.
And if he held her once spent,
be it only briefly and without meaning,
this would remind her of the way her life was once lived,
before.....

How very sad this is. A woman so desperate for some loving touch she will have sex with anyone who will have her. Tomorrow she will hate herself. Powerful. Lydi**

Many do it as you know. It is sad indeed.
Thank you Lydia
This is just so so sad. The two parties coming to the table with such different expectations. How pathetic it must feel to degrade oneself thus, just for the feeling of being wanted, desired. Yet we all do it. I did it. And how ridiculous the hopes we harbour! This poem touches such raw places! Beautifully done.

Thank you Divya
The need for affection can blind you to the sad realty. In your poem it is doubly sad because she had a life of meaning before.
Well done for this piece of perceptive writing.

Aw Gee this one made me feel sad to be reminded how lonely and desperate a girl can get when life is not so kind to her. When my husband was killed it effected me in such a lonely lost and angry way I could have succumbed to this poor sister's plight so judge not I say, so strongly put and felt Gee -- thank you! :(

HUGGS!

Uh you're welcome.
Human beings by nature are social creatures, and even those unfortunates, lowly mistreated and deceived by their fellow kind, still seek the security, warmth and comfort of companionship in hope, vain as it maybe, it shall lead to better days ahead!

Powerful, frank and profound, brevity at its best!

This is very deep. We get only a glimpse at this woman's life, but there's much that can be implied. Very well done.

Great write Gee.
I'm the type that wants to be wanted and needs to be needed, but I don't want or need anything...

Thanks Neville, appreciate your overly kind review
This must be true for so many. A sad little poem, but well written I hope her 'before' comes round again.

Thank you. One day...
i agree with Margie....it is beautiful in an almost demented way...

reminds me a bit of Merilee Rush's song "angel of the morning"---
some of the lines in there really fit this theme...
