force

I would have preferred it
if you’d hit me.

Left a visible mark.
drowned me in physical pain

Then I could show you the terror;
the bruises you left would speak for me.

I hear your words,
your excuses

And you don’t understand –
telling yourself that I should be able to forget

Asking for me to support you?
Your anger and hatred

Your friends stand by
because they trust you.

You escape among the warm comfort
of another lie.

I am alone
but safe.
