#AtoZChallenge Day 2: B -- Beast

Wedding bells singing around
Festive lights marking celebration
Brighter than the light
Is the aura of the place
With liveliest smiles all around

I ran in pretending wary
Into the darkness of my room
Lest the world see
The bruises on my skin
The tears running down

Haunting moments rush back in dark
Of him standing atop and his cruel smile
Thumping me down, every time I rose
He killed me from within, my little life
And is it him I am married to?

That fateful day I met him first
I was told it was “HIM”
All was well until we met
In this very room
As he comforted his lust at once

I spoke, I cried, I shouted
Least I knew, I wasn’t heard
Each time he pushed himself
I roared of pain from deep within
But it is him I am married to..!!!

Sad that it can happen, I hope women will realise that "being married to" is no reason to stand abuse 😕 touching piece!
