She Doesn’t Remember – Freeverse

She doesn’t remember where all her
progressive thinking evaporated,
when she actually felt the patriarchy
cocooned in his words.

She doesn’t remember how dreadful
she felt on the altar,
when all she could imagine were
visions of women running away.

She doesn’t remember all the promises
she made during blind love,
now that she feels she wasn’t herself
when she made them.

She doesn’t remember what she felt
when they spoke about money,
now that she goes parading against
families demanding dowry.

She doesn’t remember who she was
when she said yes.
She doesn’t remember who she was
when she couldn’t say an effing no.
