what done for masochistic men,
force pinioned down once again,
porno-style primed, trying to please,
graze-burnt your arms, bloody knees
– is he really worth it?
northern kisses travel slowly south,
proud his penis in lipsticked mouth;
wasted virginity, vulnerable emotions;
don’t desecrate deep mined devotion
– he’s really worth that?
he’s phallic fallible, unkind, critical,
pack a punch, get pertinent, political;
resist demands that degrade beauty,
true love more than mere bestial duty
– he’s just not worth that!
what erotic appeal this psycho-drama?
crude not kind, heartless cyclorama –
mens short span, shallow cheap attention;
bondage lust won’t last, hollow extension.
– where’s your true self-worth?
Jesus once masochist-mocked, whipped,
nailed to rough wood, naked-stripped;
lust no longer, unshackle sex-submission,
strong saviour unbinds all unkind attrition.
– He says you’re worth it:)
“He was beaten, he was tortured, but he didn’t say a word. Like a lamb taken to be slaughtered and like a sheep being sheared, he took it all in silence…God had in mind all along, to crush him with pain”. Isaiah 53: excerpts
