and then she was gone

Day 4


she disappeared slowly
when she couldn’t walk her own path
couldn’t make her own choices
when all she heard was

Wrong

and when all she felt was

Wrong

her power escaped her
needing the freedom from constraint
no longer fed by
her moments of passion
they too left
replaced with

Nothing

her attitude that was so her
the wrinkles between her eye
scrunched up nose
the way her foot would tap

Nothing

he took her heart and killed her with it
when all her good brought her pain
and all her joy brought wrath
and all her laughter was met with retribution
just her left in the void

her lip was not cut from the nervous biting
her knees not bruised from adventures
ears not ringing from loud music
sunglasses no longer shielding bright days
her voice was gone, no longer flowing and sweet
no longer full of zeal and song and whispers and fervor
it went when the hand prints came
dark and

blue

isn’t her favorite color anymore
all she can do is recite his rules

and walk his path
and heal his wounds
and forgive and forgive
and forgive

and forgive

and forgive

and forgive

and forgive

and forgive

and forgive

and forgive

until she remembers

Wrong

Wrong

Wrong

and then she was gone
