They Wouldn’t Understand

Published November 14, 2013 by hrhdana

 

She sits in silence

wondering how her life became this mess.

Her constant companion is loneliness

there’s no one she can share this with.

They wouldn’t understand.

He’s her man.

 

She sits in silence

wondering if she does deserve this.

Happiness seems like so much bullshit.

I mean who lives it?

 

She sits…

They wouldn’t understand.

 

She sits in silence

cleaning wounds her lover inflicted

trying to remember a time before

the pain.

Wishing she could change

him

her

it doesn’t even matter.

Just

change

things.

 

She sits…

They wouldn’t understand.

 

They all say,

“leave him”

They say,

“You deserve better”

 

She sits…

They wouldn’t understand.

 

She sees their disapproval

internalizes it

Something IS wrong with her

she just doesn’t know what it is.

Something has to give

they have kids.

The kids don’t deserve this

she knows this

 

She sits…

They wouldn’t understand.

 

If just one of them would

take her hand

Hold her close,

TELL her where to go.

She’s been his puppet so long

she can’t even think on her own.

They keep telling her to go

how?

where?

with what money?

 

She sits…

bites her swollen lip…

They wouldn’t understand.

And so she stays

trapped in a nightmare

lost in misunderstanding.
