The Silence of Domestic Violence

sshhh
he may hear you
and use it against you

sshhh
listen and learn
knowledge is your only weapon

sshhh
watch and observe
learn his patterns and habits

sshhh
pack up your things
and quietly tiptoe away

hopefully

A Poem About Sex

your weight upon me
is soothing
your breath
warm against my neck
your steady rhythmic movement
caressing me
your moans
melodic in my ears
your spasm
my orgasm
