I watch

Their hands hold me back

I am your last hope

But I just killed you

You scream

He kicks

He hits

You bleed

I watch

I didn't mean to

It was an accident

Nothing was supposed to happen this way

You scream

You scream of my betrayal

For my nonexistent aid

I watch

I can do nothing

They are too strong

Their arms smother me

They suffocate your pleas

You scream

His palm strikes your cheek as he roars

He tells you that you are to blame

But he is wrong

He doesn't know

He doesn't feel

I did

I used to

I watch

My body weary as I feebly push them away

They come back

They come back for more

You scream

Is your throat sore?

I watch

And I close my eyes.
