    Dear poet,

    I have closed this thread due to it's insensitive nature. While I am sure that you had no intent of being offensive, the poem is offensive to many here. I hope that you understand the need for such action.

    this poem was written as an assignment. i chose to write from a male point of view as a rapist. I'm just trying to shine a light on the pain involved in rape. If were are aware we can make a change. enjoy.

    what was the purpose of this poem? Not shining the pain...all it is inflicting pain not releasing or how a woman feels about being rape.

    In all due respect, I wouldn't/couldn't put myself in the head of a rapist. If there were something in it, to benifit woman in any way, I can understand it, but help me to understand, because to me...it makes no sense. jmo

    ps ...reading something like this, would only dampen the wounds of the already wounded...smh
