Hollow faith caress bruised esteem,
scars hidden underneath the seam,
night reverberate silent screams,
aborted dreams, aborted dreams
fractured by lustful invasion,
modesty lies among treason,
Why victims are pinned as reason?
unfold questions, unfold questions.
drenched in shame, locked in guilty vault,
she gulps down his ruthless assault,
striving for answers, ‘What’s my fault?’
When life will halt, when life will halt?
** Whether its molestation, rape or any other sexual assault – Why is it that our society victimizes the victim? Why do the victims have to live in shame and suffer the ridicule?
The monotetra is a new poetic form developed by Michael Walker. Each stanza contains four lines in monorhyme. Each line is in tetrameter (four metrical feet) for a total of eight syllables. What makes the monotetra so powerful as a poetic form,is that the last line contains two metrical feet, repeated. It can have as few as one or two stanzas, or as many as desired.
