Quivering palm

placed against the door

 

eyes squeezed tight

she mimics a prayer

heard before

 

flinching

 at the whimpers

behind the door

 

 “Mummy, Mummy,” she sobs

unable to contain

the pain anymore

 

 “See what you’ve done,” he roars

to the body

 slumped in blood

 on the floor
