Her lips remained sealed

Like the putty on the grim  windows

By the side of her bed.

She never forgot how he wooed her,

With hard teeth and calloused fingers

But for that moment alone

With her hair hanging over her face

Like creepers guarding a sacred cave,

Yes, it was only for that moment

She was numb

And he did with her what he wanted.

Time would cast shadows on her secrets

For now, she remains silent

As he haunts her in his sleep.
