You’re shouting in front of her,
she sits numbly;
wondering why can’t you talk nicely.
She remembers every word you said to her.

You only wanted to win;
without actually listening to what she had to say.
She’s getting sick of this trauma.
She tried to hum a calming tune,
but the trauma played an eerie sound.

She woke up with an aching heart
from all the grudge she holds.
She should’ve forgiven him;
however, the trauma lurks behind her.
