It took her all to do it.

Her very last shred of soul

Withered from the nightly act

Of betrayal.

But she finally told.

She didn’t want to bring her mother pain

Destroy her family

Cause his demise

As accused by her kin.

And the shame

And blame was

Heaped upon her

Like burning rain from heaven.

She didn’t mean

For any of that to happen

She just wanted it

To stop.
