Gilded Cage

Broken and bruised
tattered and torn
eyes haunted with stories untold.
Drifting
uncertain where to turn
until you are washed up
upon the shores of time.
I heard the screams again last night
the brutal rage
it throbbed and rang
filling the air
until I could take no more.
You allow this.
I do not understand
why can you not break free?
What keeps you within the gilded cage
when he beats you
and rapes you
making you less than….
I told you that this was the last time
I would stand by no more
and so I did
shattering him to the core.
I sit in the car
red light bleeding over my face
and though I know I shall burn;
the relief
the smile
that I saw upon your face
will make me happy forever more.
