Her Slow Demise


A shame known as “marital rape” happens around us. This is the evil of domestic violence our society so very calmly lives with. 

Please speak up against it. 

She woke up this morning again
Assembling her tormented body
Seeking respect that lay battered
Her meaning simply meant shoddy

 

Watching her slow demise in front
Standing next to the broken mirror
She dyed her scars with fake normalcy
Bleeding life, once knew some fervor

 

There weren’t any questions she had
She waited for no explanations either
Wearing a mask over pilling atrocities
Perhaps, even left wishing for a breather

 

A cloak of numbness and unjust burgeoning
Swallowing her, as she ceased to defy
This is her story and she dies near you
Devouring herself, for him to pacify

      I have to feel it to write about it…so not a good experience for me either…but reality it is.

    cracked reflections of a shattering society. This puts me in a dilemma, to praise your wonderful portrayal of a sensitive situation or to loathe those who give rise to such situations…
    Nevertheless, I loved your work..Thanks for posting!

      Thank you for taking time to stop by with your sensitive words…well, just spreading the awareness in any possible way would be just perfect

    …bleeding life, once knew some fervor…beautifully written.

    Thank you for your heart and for opening our eyes to an important cause for prevention of this groundless violence and for justice at last. ~S
