Brittle Pieces (NaPoWriMo 13 of 30)

She left her feet in FL Miami Beach to be exact The moment he told her she was not allowed to go anywhere without his permission The statement hidden behind a charming smile He had to be kidding She unwittingly submitted When he grabbed her around the waist after a night of drinking Told her that her body was his to be used without objection She didn’t let him but still he did Hid her heart behind two inner chambers because love requires work Buried her hurt And those marks I mean bruises No, I forgot, they we’re accidents Mistakes of his unforgiving temper Her lips bound by fear Ears in his pocket where he constantly reminded her how worthless she was But her back Her backbone though strong was a doormat with marked footprints of his disgust Shoulders entombed with the lies she told us Because he never meant it but he always did It was the last time that never was She made him do it though she truly didn’t Her will gripped tight between his fingers Hair holding whispers of carpeted floors against swollen cheeks Tear soaked bed sheets Blood drained shower stains The worst of the pain was giving away her brain the day he engrained she was too stupid to ever think for herself
