A warrior in her own marriage
guarded and alert at all times
Never knowing when the serpent
would commit conjugal crimes
Wondering how she arrived here
he’d pulled the wool over her eyes 
Ludicrous that this could happen
and no one there to hear her cries
The more forceful his voice
the less she would protest
Succumbing to his superiority
living a life oppressed 
Her words left unspoken
as if language was banned
a prisoner in her own body
much more than she could stand
