    is it rape
    when you force
    your way into my
    dreams
    when i've expressly
    told my heart
    you aren't allowed?

    do you feel
    my anger seething
    as i slowly lose
    my resolve, while
    you find my doors
    still left
    ajar?

    will you take all
    you can carry
    away, leaving me
    just enough
    to survive
    as you go away
    quietly into
    morning?

    is it insanity
    that makes me
    weak and trembling
    hating/loving the
    rising hope
    to which i
    cling

    that you'll
    come back again?

    then,
    is it rape?

    is it?

    when love jumps over
    the boundaries
    of the mind
    (and it does)
    it incites fear
    and i guess hate
    at times as well...

    This was a beautiful piece
    looking to see more of your work....

    ***stepping in from the garden of serene***

    i heard this piece all the way across the stream and i just had to see what the commotions was about. i now see that this poem speaks volumes of many who go through the feelings of one we may/may not want in our lives.

    well spoken poet...

    ***returning to the garden with covered ears***
