Undress Me

My
Lover;
My loving
Gentle giant;
Engaged for eight months,
Then we became transformed.
Married to my one true love,
Until the day his veil wore thin;
He would undress me, then abuse me,
Descending upon me in vicious rage
As I kicked and screamed in terrorized fear;
His unlawful act of carnal hate
Overlooked by society;
Hid in the vows of marriage;
The bride not heard or seen
Until it’s too late;
One more victim;
Spousal rape;
The bride
Died.
