GHOST OF A WOMAN

When I met them,
They told me the bruizes of their heart,
The bruizes of their soul,
The bruizes of their body!
They no longer existed!
They could still feel the acid of the man’s hand on their face,
Tearing the skin,
Leaving the blood flowing,
Screams!
A body falling on the iced floor!
Thrown as garbadge, in a corner
Of a room!
Forgotten !
She was for a few hours,
Or a few days!
No scream could escape from her throat anymore!
She was lying there,
Surrounded, by what seems her vomit!
Tears!
Guts , torn!
A livid face,
Turned toward the dirty carpet!
Outside,
The siren of a car,
By the side road!
A dog barking somewhere,
And in her,
Darkness,
Numbness!
Hurt!
Despair!
Misunderstanding!
Her dress, torn by the fury of her man!
Music, could be heard in a room,
And tears, running on a beautifull face!
Why?
She could’nt answer that question.
He was so nice , when they met!
And one day,
For something trivial,
The fist left a groove in her chest,
And a scar, in her heart!
No one to help!
No one to understand!
No one to share!
But she,
Alone,
Transparent it seems!
In her despair.
Why?
Flowers and excuses!
And a few days later,
A second blow,
This time on her face,
So that she could’nt atract any other!
Jalousy,
Misplaced!
She,
only loved one man!
Hers!
Why?
No answer.
No one to care!
No one to share!
Discouragement!
O,
She would like to run away,
But where?
No papers,
No job,
No welcoming place for her!
Scars,
Tears,
Screams!
Blood!
Please, she said:
I need to talk,
I need to share!
Be there,
Someone for me!
