Just because she kept quiet
It does not mean she said yes!
And your refusal to hear her
Won't silence her plea or make it right
Your assault has become a cancer, mutating her very cells into poison
Almost immediately her confidence declines
The endless tears and unspoken words punch her from the inside
The purity of the bond sullied in the most violent of ways
Trust broken beyond any redemption
Her safe haven became her toxic hell
I heard her scream, I saw her cry but most of all I felt her pain
I felt the three finger marks bruising her left cheek and the four painted on her right
I felt the shame welling in her heart as the circle of patriarchs around her kept chanting 'silence is golden.'
Or at least he still pays the bills, bekezela
Adding salt to the wound, strangling the little life left in her with their victim blaming
What future do you expect when all you've done is suppress the present?
Let not your silence be a barrier to her justice.
