THE ONLY RAPE
The Libyan Sea today is very rough,
My summer plan so far has been a laugh,
It doesn’t matter though because I try,
My wings to open and pretend to fly.
There’s nothing left for me but to pretend,
This bitter feeling seems to have no end,
I sleep and wake up and you’re still there,
A ghost of love I cannot longer bear.
To you our love affair was just a rape,
from your false world you only can escape,
I try to help you and I get abuse,
I try to love you but there is no use.
The only rape has been done by you,
You rape my soul by making false the true,
The sun, the sea, the bright Libyan blue,
The only rape has been done by you.
