I Knew It Didn't Hurt

I knew it didn’t hurt
Those words etched so plainly in her mind
As the sting of his hand lingers on her face
She couldn’t let herself feel the pain
Additional violence would then ensue
He loudly yelled…”Are you hurting”?
“No...” she managed to verbalize while
Choking back the tears
I knew it didn’t hurt
The final words she heard as
He left her unresponsive body lie on the floor.
