A Mile

I walked a mile in her shoes
to see how it truly felt
the pain of ignorance
constantly thrown her way
and taunts and anger
barging their way,
and truly, I felt the anguish
the cry for help
and sometimes, the defending silence
as if in mourning she’d stepped
a drawn out goodbye
to herself.
I could feel the lost hope
the lost will
to fight so much for her own life
her own way,
and there upon the edge of her world
I stood aghast
unable to stop her
from stepping into air
muttering under trembling breath,
‘Forgive me, love,
I couldn’t live their way.
I couldn’t dream of letting you go
so I let life go instead.
Forever, Yours!’

…and I gasped…
drenched upon the bed
in the dark room.
