Sometimes, Its so hard to listen to a woman who has undergone a lot of physical, mental and emotional torture, that she ends up taking a wrong step. This is one such poem where a woman falls for a guy and marries him, following which the guy turns brutal on her. She resists him as long as she could and then she takes a strong decisive action which leads her to various consequences and criminal action upon her, yet she decides not to reveal anything... But, one fine day..............
After a long gestation of silence,
she finally spoke, about her stolen innocence.
Though she was totally broken,
She decided her silence must be spoken.
It all began that wedding night,
when they kissed each other tight.
He promised to love her,
But, it was till the function was over.
She believed, put her faith in him.
He broke her legs, so she doesn't leave him.
Yet, she believed his love was true,
But, he hit her black and blue.
He promised, none would love her more,
But, catches her hair and drags her over the floor.
Yet, She remained calm,
by singing her religious psalm
Sometimes, he praises her face and her eyes,
But, after his booze, he goes down to split her thighs.
She tries resisting, as he starts pounding,
Yet he never stopped, seeing her bleeding.
He made promises that she could believe,
Fed up of his lies, she remained naive.
She wanted to leave, she wanted to run away,
But her relationship was at bay.
She mourned, pleading at God's sake,
He warned her, leaving him was a big mistake.
Finally, she decided to do something psychologically harder,
He blocked her way and she pulled the trigger.
