VOICELESS VOICE

 

He brought her Roses

 

He was very charming and seemed too good to be true

 

Very respectful and caring; he couldn't hurt a fly

 

He slapped her during an argument and blamed her for his actions

 

She wore sunglasses wide enough to cover her swollen face; she avoided her inquisitive colleagues

 

He brought her roses and apologized

 

 

 


He was very charming and loved by all

 

She searched deeply for what she had done to make him change

 

She let go of her expectations, dreams and voice to adopt his identity for peace sake

 

He went a step further today by punching her

 

She wore long clothes to conceal the bruises; she told her collegues she fell from the stairs

 

He brought her roses and apologized


 

 

 

Lately, he's been very charming to everyone except her

 

He called her names and blamed her for his actions

 

Her family and friends don't come around anymore; he controls her finances

 

He went a step further by choking her today; she passed out

 

He rushed her to the hospital and was right by her side when she regained consciousness

 

He told the doctor she was involved in an accident; she was voiceless and he became her voice

 

He brought her roses, teared up and apologized


 

 

 

Today, she got a ride from a male colleague when her car broke down

 

He accused her of infidelity and threatened to kill her

 

She decided she has had enough and was ready to leave him

 

She packed her clothes and called her mum to pick her up

 

He snatched the phone from her hand and stabbed her repeatedly as she screamed for help

 

He brought her roses, this time, he left it at her grave
