Speed of shamelessness

Deep in her heart
the ache won’t stop.
It groans.
It moans.
It threatens to pop.

Over her head
ghosts keep circling.
She tries to fight
despite her knees trembling.
but the horror encapsulating her
cannot be escaped.

Underneath her skin
a herd of neurons collide.
They trip.
They topple.
They fall from sides.

Weight so immense
her bones start to creak.
She tries to pray
despite her faith getting bleak
but the swell of guilt
cannot be embraced.

She had hoped
nothing traveled faster than light
until she did them what they did to her
and discovered
the speed of shamelessness.

They never felt the way she did.
