If Only

Balderdash!
Claptrap!
Cease your lies child
no one is tracking you
no one is trying to sell you
what is wrong with you
she is your mother.
Blind
eyes turned inward
seeing
not the bruises
not the broken bones
nor burns
nor  sullen turn of mouth.
Screams
muted
forced down
chocked upon
a knee upon her back
woman who was to love
turned to torture instead.
Neighbors shaking heads.
How did it come to this?
Lamenting
public beating of chests
if only…..
they had not ignored…..
they had opened their doors…..
intervened…..
helpless
shrug of shoulders
just another uncounted death
preventable
if only…..
