Drink Another

By , Hilton, NY
Angry words coming out little by little
as the spit flies from your mouth, onto my skin.
As you're up in my face-
closer than you ever were before.

Fists clenched by your side
hitting the wall behind my head.
Inching little by little;
taking my soul away piece by piece.

I look away as the tears fall.
Your face makes everything so much clearer.
Not paying attention to a word you say;
my life flashes before my face.

All the fantasies I was living in this place,
turn into reality that she once again,
made a HUGE mistake.
Roaring thunder comes my way.

The words shared pierce my skin,
even deeper than the years before;
cutting in way to far.
A child crouched in the corner.

Hands above my face,
blocking myself from the hits...
the words sting worse than;
his hands ever could.

Now thinking I escaped my last day;
back in the same place.
The ridicule is back in action,
the lying is here and forever after.

Sinking closer to the floor.
Flashing back to the moment;
condescending words coming stronger at me
than the night before, thinking in my head;

"In a little bit this will all come back to him,
the life that I've known will be long gone.
But out of this whole thing there is one thing I will remember;
don't forget to restock the fridge."

Maybe if he drinks another one this will all be over.
