When a woman is fed up
There is nothing anyone can do about it
She cries and cries
Her silent moan for freedom
WHEN would she get away or
WILL she ever get away?
Trapped within these 4 walls
She looks around for an escape
But doesnt find one
So she goes back to her corner
And as the door CLICKS
And Creaks open
Her heart jumps and skips a beat
As she realizes that it is HIM

He walks over strokes her hair
Has his way and in less than 20 minutes
She hears the door click again
Announcing his departure

Tears no longer fall from her eyes
This is a phase that she has long gotten over
Its something like an everyday ritual
He uses her
He abuses her
Takes advantage of her
She no longer fights for what is rightfully hers
She has lost it ALL
and most importantly
