her silences become her

she doesn’t volunteer
the facts
you have to
pull them from herhug-1315545_960_720
you have to learn
to use some tact
her silences
become her
she keeps her profile
dark and low
so no old fiends
can find her
she doesn’t need
to retrogress
her battle scars
remind her
she doesn’t interact
at work
with other personnel
she spends her
spare time comforting
young victims like herself
…..
