There is a voice
Unable to speak 
Broken from drinking acid
Chemically silenced
From speaking 
Weeping eyes carved out
And crushed 
Beneath a heavy boot
So no one can read their unspoken plea
Hands and feet left bound 
Tethered to an abandoned leash 
The tin can 
Set adrift
The rusted cage
The key
All the measures taken to prevent 
A rescue 
Were unnecessary 
Since no one knew she was
