Walking On Broken Glass

Walking On Broken Glass

A Poem by Tasha
"

Just popped into my head. About forced marriage.

"
Daddy lost the bet,
The bet between another dad
Desperately trying to find a wife for his son
Daddy lost the bet,
He won some money
But he lost me
Because now I'm marrying a man
I just met,
And don't even know
Apparently I'm marrying into royalty
But daddy is very royal himself
I'm walking on broken glass
Trying to convince myself that
Daddy did the best for his little girl
But this guy,
This guy is the devil
He shows no love
He only shows his lustful eye
Today's the day
The day I give everything away,
The day everything is taken away from me
All because of a stupid bet
Why am I the grand prize
I should have a say in this,
But I guess I don't
I walk on broken glass,
Pour chemicals on myself
To look less attractive,
Maybe that will turn him off
No,
He looks at me and says
"From now on you will forever be my biggest b***h"


Thanks a lot daddy..

It's quite good. I'm a total Nazi on spelling so I will point out "Poor chemicals on myself" It's pour (:
Not trying to sound mean really. But it is a good write and on a very good subject. Giving away your child. it's almost like slavery, but not quite. You did a good job in catching the emotions that the girl feels. It's almost like you are the girl. It shows her opinion clearly.

It is a very good poem. Giving away your child for someone to marry is wrong. Let your child decide who they want to marry. You caught every feeling of the girl. I caould feel her wanting to not be there, to want to be free, yet, she couldn't. Very beautifully done.

To be stripped of one's power, of one's value, is the worst kind of debasement. It is a rape of the spirit and the soul.

Well that was random. Very powerful, very emotional. Kinda made me want to strangle whoever Mr. Redtext was. Epic write.

Wow! The surprise at the end was thrilling! I have a keen eye on this stuff, so the ending wasn't much of a surprise, but it did catch me off guard somewhat. I do however like how it just dropped in two lines. The feeling of being forced to marry, it just sends chills down my spine!

Other than the spelling errors, this piece is perfect! I give it a 99. Kudos to you!

it's like an arranged marriage among the Chinese. Sad but true for some. Muslims also do this and I've witnessed a wedding myself. Poor groom, he looked shocked when he saw his wife-to-be.

Very intense, powerful emotion. Well written. And what a horror to have the man that should care and protect you most lose you in a foolish gamble, perhaps even more wrenching that the future he brought upon you. Thought provoking.
