There Was No

bait

There was no love in this.

Only violence.

Palpable and potential

surrounding and suffocating me

and I, cast into the center of it,

like fresh bait.

Pushed again into a situation of pressure

vulnerability

humiliation

everything that the stronger forces on the weak

subtly

and brazenly.

 

I cried bitterly

but in the end I obeyed

for I wanted to live to see you again

to show you where you had led me to

and my soul felt empty

and my body became a ghost.

 

Abbandonata
