It slips from her tongue –
a venomous truth,
sentencing her to a damnation
of metaphorical chains around her wrists –
holding her hostage
to an overused lie.
She craves to be set free,
to say
what needs to be said
to the keepers of the restrictions
that hurt so many.

They enforce a pain,
a knife stuck between four chambers –
loneliness, hope, love, and compassion.

Endlessly bleeding,
she sits on the stone cold floor
with no hope.
