August Writing ~ Wifely #AugustWriting

5

A selection of names spewed daily on her

His modus operandi delivered with slurs

She had her young heart captured my him

Promises shoveled convinced her to give in

A matrimonial trap sprung on this beauty

Pleasing the unpleasant as her commanded duty

All essence of her being forced to be hidden

Behaving only by his rules forcefully given

A spark of survival seeks escape from within

The scream of her strength reclaiming her skin

A rediscovery of herself now no longer treading lightly

She will no more be confined to his warped form of wifely
