About him

His back is turned to me
I hesitated to speak
There was nothing I could do for him
not anymore
The rapid pace of the heartbeat
in my body scared me a little.
He reminded me that I didn’t have to stay
I agree.
But my feet didn’t seem to get it
He didn’t want me there
He’d rather fornicate
than have me witness his pain
He was skinned right before my eyes
He’s aching and raw
Flesh burning under my gaze
“It’ll be okay” I say weakly
He disagrees.
