    she just
    cries at night
    alone............
    in the shadows
    behind the backs of stars
    making symbols above their
    heads with her pain
    muted sounds escaping in
    the vacuum of
    police sirens
    and night owls stirring
    looking for a place to get down
    she used to
    dance and hang out
    and chill with her girls
    and just enjoy
    living...then...
    see she didn't understand
    why he dragged her behind her house
    and see she did not know why he
    invaded her temple
    leaving her in a state
    in which she obsessively scrubs
    her body to rid herself of
    memories that have left a stench
    she can't even hold herself
    and she shivers
    see momma told her through her
    drunken stupor that she shouldn't
    have worn those "hoe clothes"
    tight mini-skirt pronouncing
    her every curve in a native tongue
    that her momma said she couldn't speak
    sister said "that's what your pretty ***
    gets"....
    daddy been gone his voice not even an echo
    she is alone
    wondering what ever happened to
    sun rises and fresh air and
    laughter and spring breezes and
    love...
    it all died that night...when her voice
    left her to find help...it never returned
    and now she sits
    silently and cries
    behind the backs of stars
    making symbols above their heads
    with her pain
