Meet a true heroine.

My friend. 

A Russian princess with a heart so bold. 

Her story of a fiendish cop.

A hostile night.

A vicious assault.

Wells tears in many an eye. 

What despair.

What sadness.

Day to day,

Pain.

Incessant.

Ten million knives,

Deep within her,

Scar her skin.

A constant reminder.

A bed her body imprints.

A mouth her care-taker feeds.

A free-fall her brain replays.

Seven-stories off a balcony

Broke more than her bones.

Her being remains in fragments,

Blurs the past,

Love she wishes for.

Joy she prays for.

Dreams echo in her ears

Left blank except for that hostile night

That vicious assault

That fiendish cop

Witnessed by no one.

Believed by no one. 

Not lawyers

Not officers

Not the life she hoped for.

Meet a true-heroine

My friend.

A Russian princess.

Her story burns into the minds of those who read it.
