our booming voice
gives me the power
to close my mouth
and look away.

slap.

your hand connects
with my cheek
and leaves a sting
i've felt before.

you finish your lecture
your face red; eyes beady
and i scurry away –
shaken.

turning off the faucet,
i wipe my face,
and pray you won't notice
my eyes are red.

I know that when it comes to writing, we write what moves us, and we incorporate our emotions into each of our pieces to make one, beautiful piece of art.
