painfully so

painfully so

she was a submissive
sort of woman

she had been in training
since childhood

she did not know
that which she endured
and tolerated
all these years
would lead her to this,
a life decorated with
disdain, tears and fears
a life she secretly hated

every adult she had ever met
met her
with their own list of demands

from dishes to dicks
from kisses to kicks
all stealing a piece of her light
her soul

parents, aunts, uncles
and weird cousins and neighbors
wanting favors
“can you keep a secret” . . .
and she did
for who could she tell

her screams were silent
the yelling could only be heard
in her nightmares

she did not dream anymore
save for the endless torment
that vision
her closed eyes would bring

she just wished those
haunting images
and faces
would go away . . .
but they would not

they refused her demands
took no heed to her cries
her beckoning
her pleading
they refused her demands
for they too knew
she was submissive

painfully so
