Poetry 2018 Longlist, Giftsy Dorcas

RED   

Red shadows trailing, wombs are wailing

Drowning in the misery of flesh trade…

Degraded, fondled, price tagged

Ruffled hair, buried dreams

Numb pain, dumb voice

Living horror, endless sorrow

Body putrefied, Soul disoriented

Enticed or threatened

Trampled by money power

Trapped by human trafficking

Baby to Barbie

Leeches are sucking

Red life

Torches are showing

Red light

Lockers are filling

Red money.

What is her life behind this secluded ghetto?

Red life, Red light, Red money.

  1. RED IN WORDS
    BLOOD IN DEEDS
    BLED IN THOUGHTS
    INTO THE WILD
    ~ OF YOUTH & ADULTHOOD
    STORIES UNWIND
    IN DISTANT AND THE WORLD
    IS NUMB TO THE RED
    HATE-RED
