You are all repression
and denial and avoidance
in the face of anything
not ideal
because the alternative is
self hatred
And we both love
too much to prioritise
your happiness
and do you see now
this is killing me

She was dying for Attention,
But was unwilling to entertain comments
For her intellectual or physical Exhibitionism.
It seems as if she was trying to provoke

Feminists clash with Misogynists
Yang versus Yang
Tempers flare as Temperatures rise.
Not a cool breeze in sight.
It's a Factional Fight
We like to think
We're  and advanced and progressive
But the World
Ain't so sexy any more.

Your remarks have been censored!
Your remarks have been banned!
Your remarks have been erased from the official records!
Do you remember
What you said?

It's hard to remain enthusiastic
About participating in Society
When the primary objective
Is to "keep people in their place".
They give you the freedom to do some things you enjoy
As long as they remain in control.

"Hey, Gene."
"I caught my daughter, Lisa, posing nude online."
"What do you think I should do about it?"
"Do you think I should confiscate her computer,"
"Or beat her, or what?"
"Well, ask those guys at the American Nazi Movement meeting, "
"Which you attend, Ralph."
"I'm sure they know a lot about Obscenity."

Is the Original Sin
Do not partake in the fruit from the Tree Of Knowledge!
You will be banished from the comfortable "Eden"
Of your own Ignorance and Stupidity!

She stares at me,
Her eyes seem to search mine.
Her hands stretch towards the division,
Towards that finely marked glass line.

She seems to whisper something,
Sayings too faint to hear.
Yet her lips move with such passion,
As though her utterances are very dear.

I take a step back & stare,
At the being before my eyes.
Torn robes & mangled hair,
And scarred hands to my surprise.

I try to draw close,
Yet I cannot seem to reach.
It's as though a barrier lies between us,
One that I cannot breach.

I looked with more intent,
But the less I saw instead.
Yet in her eyes I could discern,
Something that filled me with dread.

Then suddenly it hit me
From out of nowhere
And like an unraveled mystery
All became clear.

For in my curiosity
And my desire for close inspection
I had failed to see
I was staring at my own reflection

Previously I purged.
Traces and reminders
Repressed with zeal
Detached from truth.

Now I binge,
Indulgent hypotheses
Fuel fantasies
Detached from truth

Elusive middle ground
Between denial and delusion

I wanted to reveal
My innermost thoughts,
But I was afraid to express them
Because I feared that I would be violating
The religious norms of my culture.
To tell you the truth,
I wanted to show off  my flesh.
I wanted to pose naked
And have men compliment me.
I don't know why I wanted to do it?
But I didn't dare.
One Day,
I was walking with my brother,
And I was just sharing my feelings with him
About the current political situation in our country.
He told me to shut up.
I don't know what got into me?
I nearly pushed him in front of a moving train!
In addition to hiding my feelings
And concealing my flesh,
I guess I was suppressing my rage?
