Untitled Poem #6

I am not sure that I understand.
Once you muttered a cryptic statement
never explored
never explained
swept under the carpet
as you have done to me.
Rip my tongue out
slander my name
form a wall
stalwart til the very end.
One did know
protect me she could not
tears checked
lashing out
wonder why I am so angry?
Failed.
Tortured.
Can you even see?
These memories….
I desire not
peck away
at my consciousness.
Blinded
blinkered
beclouded
shout out with fear:
‘never ever
should one believe’….
for those words
spit
sigh
slash
the name of her abuser
who will be burned in effigy.
