Shame. {Poetry}

 

Shame

I was hurt

And from the wound

Flowed not blood

But clenched fists of vitriol

You stood there

Punch drunk

Accepting the heavy blows

Waiting for more

All you shed

Was a solitary teardrop

Your feminine dignity ascendant

While mine laid low

In a pool of shame


 {Tear drop.}
