I took a walk
blind to all
but what my mind imposed.
Two lovers, intertwined on a park bench
A man viciously ravaging a whore
in the stench
of the weighted and wet, filthy air.
And somewhere in between
I walked on
sheathed in glistening silk
your gift to me.
The brutalized bitch in me screaming,
“You will never break me.”
a gift to those already broken.
