She - Poem by Sandra Martyres

Streaming red eyes
He did ask the whys
But she didn't answer
His fury grew like cancer

Soon she shrivelled up
Refusing even the tea cup
Something that she liked
She feared it was spiked

He finally abandoned her
Her family had to rescue her
They had no real choice
She required medical advice

Some years passed by
She would often cry
But never uttered a word
Her voice was not heard

Then came her final day
They had watched her pray
Before lying down in bed
Later she was found dead

Under the bed covers
Lay a letter from her lover
Where he made it very clear
That his wife was still dear

NB; A story of a young woman forced to marry an old man. She later meets a younger man who promises to elope with her- the usual tale just before the appointed day he announces that he is actually married..........
