beauty is the reign of terror



she kept begging him not to hit her
and he kept hitting her.... and the more she cried, it drove him mad? excited?  
he hit her more
kept hitting her... and after a while, all senses left her...
 

from out of body, she saw herself, battered and bruised... more in spirit then in body
she saw herself hooked on to the IV ... only she was dying drip, after drip...
images kept plinking around, in a fast forward or a slow motion...
she saw herself, on the floor, never so broken...




 
she got up, saw herself outside the door
and walked on ... an automaton, a zombie ...
she saw herself being stared at...
she walked

a thought: if she were to be picked up and raped right now... it wouldn't matter, not a bit
didn't happen... she walked on

somewhere, something was screaming for attention
her cellphone...

45 missed calls, 7 am in the morning...
it rang again, she picked up, "hello!"

"Happy birthday, darling!"

"eh?"

"HAPPY BIRTHDAY!, can you hear us?"
her parents!

"hey dad-mom, thank you!", "what happened? baby? are you alright?"
"oh yeah, totally... i just have a bad migraine...sorry"


in larger scheme of things... this perhaps doesnt matter too much... worse things happen, somalia, haiti, china, india... whatever
but in her universe, a planet was annihilated... "pullquote"
