Untitled 2

She lay frozen
pretending to
be dead.
That was the only
way she could survive.
Her wounds bled
soaking into the soil,
mother earth wailed.
Her body had cuts
and bruises in untold
places, the wind howled.
She had blood tears.
Men around her
kicked her in places
which hurt the most.
One of them said,
Die whore die,
you deserve horrible death.
They left her for the dead,
wolves and vultures.

In the end,
it was the dead, wolves
and vultures,who nursed
her back to life.
She shall rise. She shall.

The clock waits in earnest.
