Know my Name

It began when I no longer had a name…

I was just a simple dead weight.
Like a black hole, absorbing my husbands hate.
Taking it all…

Love broke my faith, ribs and nose
and even crushed my toes.

Unfaithful although,
-“they are only close friends you know”.

I had to shut down, for the role of his worthless wife,
to answer to his hands and nodding to the lies.

3 years later…

I met an angel at the laundry room. Straight from
my hands she cursed my husbands working costume.

It was the first time I had touched the ground,
in a long-long-long time.

I was the dark and Mariah was the light.
I was the peace and she was the fight.

Never again, no more abuse, no more rape!
My angel and I shared my escape.

We didn’t have the patience for the hitchhike,
and a stranger lent us a car, much in dislike.

We had hundred miles of road ahead,
with only stops for laughs, water and bread.

… But in my stomach I felt a growing fear.
I whispered in my angel’s right ear:

-"My angel, you have awaken my flame.
But to receive peace, he has to know my true name.

Baby turn around, and grab your Gun…"
