A Forbidden City

A Forbidden City




A future so dim,

a life of filthy sin,

she was selling her body,

which was intense and thin,

she once thought fancifully

that her body was a forbidden city,

she felt her family’s pity

burning in her heart,

and it just all fell apart,

as strangers had now fallen

to the temptation of looting

her forbidden city,

she no longer felt the pity,

and her future was bought,

by men with dirty thoughts,

that combined with the brooding

sense of danger,

the false heat, the disgusting lust,

no protection, no trust,

all hope lost, as it filled her head,

and her once forbidden city, now dead.
