SPEAK

"You Motherfucker"

She said as she let the darkness within her

That she suppressed and kept hidden for

so long, awaken.

Rendering him powerless 

with every word she spoke.

Her blatant disregard for his feelings

was evident... He deserved NO mercy!

 

At seven years old she had the 

privilege of dancing with the devil.

His smell of cheap cologne, bogies and whiskey

stained on her clothes

And her cries were muffled by his hand

As he groped her tightly.

 

No boobs...no ass 

But that didn't stop him from touching.

Whispered in her ear "sexy" as he used her body

And disregarded her soul.

His fingers violently ripping away 

the petals of her innocence, as he tore through

the layers of his own daughter's love.

Beating her trust into fear

Black and blue reminders of the

intamacy they shared.

 

Told her she deserved it 

And she believed him.

Said "this is our little secret" 

And she kept it.

 

Too afraid to speak.
