Tick tock!
this poem is a trigger warning;

String of broken promises and false hopesmakes our storyA succession of liesbuilt on the pyre of the dead truthsbecause you didn't keep the promise

 
You surrendered to the patriarchyYou stirred and dissolved all the hope and lovein your infected vial of angerYou cannot save me againbecause you didn't keep the promise

 
Don't you dare ask me to look at the blinding light againpushing again me against my boundariesasking me to breathe against my wishesbecause you didn't keep the promise

 
You kept the stinking liestucked under false pretensesI rose from the ashes just to be burned alive on the pyre againYou can't  keep weaving the same web of deceit againDon't you dare because you didn't keep the promise

 
The more of you try to hide itIt spreads the infection moreThe more you smirk the more…
