93 (who?)
She shivers
and throws her head back hard into the pillow
   (the goose down feathers spike her,
    fierce into her scalp, but she thrashes again).

He groans
and bites her neck with a gurgle
    (transferring an 'I love you'
      from the tips of his teeth, to her veins).

She convulses
her nails scratching a line into his back
  (he crosses it, she crosses herself and prays,
   she prays for nought - he exclaims; "Oh God").

He cries out
as her muscles contract in spasm
    (he spills his guts to her, overjoyed
     by her assumed compliance.)

She whimpers
as her body tries to force the intrusion out.
     (and the muscle of her heart contorts once more
      and, overwrought, shatters. Again.)

...because not saying no, is not the same as saying yes.

This poem is so powerful. I don't even know how to explain how wonderful this is. 
It's such a sad story.
