her mind is writing the scene of vengeance,
nostalgia lingers as niceties are cringing but intended,

not knowing how to fathom escaping it,
she sits idle at his embrace, clinching,
praying for him to finish it,
free you from this demon that is him,
her eyes widened like hollow sockets,
still clinching, but fatigue resonates in her soul,
in her body, in her heart,
this time she says,
