A craft of mankind

A craft of mankind

A Poem by Digvijay Singh

That's what she is. A vessel

with alluring long neck

and appealing curves in the middle.

Used for lusting the pity

random men walking the

evening. Emptied of her thoughts,

of her stories and her blood,

she now just pours pleasure on

the bodies of unknown companions

every other night. Indulging their

and only their wishes. "Oh i like the

way your skin smells" they all say but 

then why she finds herself 

in the rugged bed sheet laying

alone even before it's dawn. 

"I like your moanings" they'd say.

Why are you deaf when she cries

you stories where she's scared.

You like her fingers on your skin

in the dim light of a room of course.

Why don't you hold her hand

then in the daylight of spring?

She may laugh in the summer on

the same joke she's told hundredth

time. What about the last August's

rain still thundering in her present.

How long would it take, how long

of this men to men passing,

an earthen pot can take. It would

slip somewhere on the dead

stone floor and break to pieces.

But you do not care do you,

As long as she moans right,

laughs again on the same joke

and doesn't ask you to stay.

After all, That's what she's.

A vessel. 

To pour herself again tonight.

This is so powerful & touching to me. Never been a w***e, but after being raped steadily thru my childhood, I started my young adulthood thinking that pleasing men was all I was good for in life. You paint this picture with surprising accuracy, how it can feel when a woman gives up everything that makes her a sparkling human being & she stoops to the demands of those who only want her as a vessel to make them feel better about their sexual prowess. You have nailed this to an extreme degree, which is rare for most people writing on this topic, but not having really lived the life. I'm amazed you can put yourself in someone else's shoes so vividly . . . this is the crux of being a good writer! (((HUGS))) Fondly, Margie
