her crime

we carry the guilt of knowing
the reason behind her leaving
but we honor a secret made
and try not to break a promise

should we be punished
for keeping our silence
for letting her get away with it

is it really a crime to free one’s self?

should we ask forgiveness
for the sins we did not commit
for the burden of knowing her choice
to kill her demons

are we to blame
for not being able to stop her
when her only wish was to save herself
to silence the voices
and find her peace

yet her way to break free was the one thing
that made us culpable in their eyes
