#4 Poetry 101 Rehab : Sleep

How do you sleep?

Knowing that you have tortured,

Ruined the lives of many women,

How do you sleep?

When their screams echo

Through your walls of oblivion,

How do you sleep?

Knowing that you are burdened

With the depravity of their souls,

How do you sleep?

You sleazy, sick, sanctimonious

Son of a bitch.

This week’s Poetry 101 Rehab prompt is Sleep. It has been almost two months since I wrote a poem, it feels good to be writing again. In this poem, I have highlighted the dark side of a man who embraced the right to butcher women. This goes out to all those men who take women for granted and exploit them unthinkingly, both body and soul.
