Her eyes are lost in darkness waiting for sunlight
Sunlight she has not seen in so long
At night sleep remains absent as the mind wonders
Wondering what life is outside her prison
Wondering how affection feels by loved ones
Wondering how life feels without abuse
Wondering how it feels to be loved
Morning comes, and reality kicks in
A reality where pure evil prevails
How can humanity be this far gone?
Dignity and pride are part of the past
Obedience and humiliation are part of the present
Day in day out she dies a little more
Day in day out she tries to survive
Day in day out she wonders where she belongs
Day in day out she dreams of a life like yours
Day in day out she loses herself into an illusion
Escaping reality in virtual snippets of life
Her suffering is for her alone as the world is oblivious
Alone she is. Hope for a brighter future is what keeps her alive
Humanity is far gone. Love may save her if she does not close her eyes once and for all
This poem is dedicated to all the women who are suffering from domestic violence and abuse. So many feel alone while the world is oblivious to their suffering. They are not alone. All of us can act by reaching out and holding space. Victims need to know they have a way out, always. Next time you suspect someone is a victim of abuse, reach out and let them know they are not alone. There is always an exit just around the corner.
