I saw the pain decide for you...

Silent Witness

by Y. M. Roger

Behind The Door Contest Winner 

I peered at you
      from behind the door
 
You, at whom they’d laughed
      and called a whore

 
            Behind that veil
            Your skin so pale

 
As white sands along
      the sandy shore...

 
 

I saw as the tears
      fell from your eyes
 
Hurt from their
      accusations and lies

 
            It was no joke
           And your heart broke

 
As pain was reflected
      in your guise...

 
 
But then I watched
      your defiance soar
 
A choice of red silk
      for your encore
 
            
You’re dressed to kill
           And I felt the chill

 
As your anger rushed past
      my hiding door. . .
