The bleeding Ink on my paper

She provoked
And my beliefs were soon belied.

"Socialized and confined"; you mocked the flock.

"What do you seek, you all?"

We screamed your sight in unison.

"You are a nice girl" consoled your sister.

My silence was insulted over and over.

Like a fool I traced it all,
Winding through all the steps,
To make some sense from it all.

One day, I decided to erase it all.
My longing was a haste.

Dear Professor,
I finally learned to ink that day;
When my empty body walked through those closed gates.

Grief and guilt held that pursuit.
Moreover, I could not race with those shoes.

My words are empty as they were then.
I weep for a lil ink from your pen.
