PAIN vs LOVE

HE TOOK HER BY THE HAIRS
MOPPED THE KITCHEN FLOOR WITH HER
ALL TO DROWN A PAIN TOO DEEP FROM WITHIN
SCARRED AND MARRED BY THE PATRIACHAL SYSTEM
TOO PROUD TO CRY FROM THE PAIN CAUSED 
BY THE MAN SHE LOVED THE MOST

SHE STOOD BY HIM IN THE STREET 
SHRUNK INTO A CORNER IN THE CLOSET
NEVER SQUEELED, LIKE A SHEEP TO THE SLAUGHTERS
WALKING HEAD HIGH IN THE CLOUDS
HIDING THE TEARS THAT DROWN HER SMILE

DEEP IN HER BREWS THIS RAGE
AS SHE LOOKS AT HIM SLEEP LIKE A BABE
THINKING OF JUST HOW EASY IT WOULD BE
WORDS DROWN THOSE THOUGHTS THOUGH

WAS SHE THE ONE TO "BRING IT?”
WOULD SHE SUMMON DEATH TO SEPARATE THEM
HOW WOULD SHE BE ABLE TO FACE THE SOCIETY?
SHE HAS BEEN SMILING ALL THIS WHILE IANYWAY
