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.
