Woman by Nora Abdullah

Posted on November 27, 2012 by


We are women.

There’s you, me and her.

She lives with her heart on the ground beat, run over and almost dead.

She lies because she doesn’t recognize the truth anymore.

She let you down, but that’s the only direction she knows.

Shattered pieces of glass left behind. There’s not much of her now.

She fears sobriety.

Her limbs are shaking.

Her bones turning into ashes.


I’m unstable but I’m not broken like her.

You say we’re all the same.

I don’t want to be you. A bore sane and plain.



Let her go.  Leave her be.


For the sake of me let her go.  Leave her in disguise, even though she’s

naked in front of you.


We’re naked in front of you.
