Maiden...no more



They left us...
Their morbid curiosity gratified;
But in our heart, a wound
The African sun never can heal!

Hey I just love you style of writing....lol



Seriously ..if not mistaken , is this about a woman feeling she has been robbed of her "virtue" Maybe we need to celebrate Vagina day for this maiden no more

Alone, but not lonely
For many abound,
With wounded virtues and broken hearts.
All left to fester, in the unyielding African heat.
