Disguised by her own delusion
she gave herself to him.
Idling beneath his hold,
begging for his control,
enthralled by his love.
Incidental and accidental
Plunging into a pool of callous and
Thrusting a limp body where it was pushed.
Licensing him with adulterated adoration.
Insisting his need, averring her fault
The lines of his face, the figure at her
window, the checkups and the
The jealousy and possessiveness
convincing her she needed him too.
She was confined within a fantastical syndrome of hope,
repressing the realness of their reality.
Never realizing his hands were wrapped around her neck
and she was suffocating.
