live and let live

Every night I lay in bed and ache,

Ache for a new feeling, for new thoughts to filter that mistake

But I always seem to come back to you, and that night.

You knew id never put up a fight.

I remember laying in bed listening to you crack open one beer at a time,

It was only a matter of minutes before the anger and alcohol took over your mind.

After that I wasn’t your Booie Bear anymore.

Nobody ever has to know, just quietly close the door.

I remember how you smelled,

Every word you said,

And every place you touched.

I remember wanting to scream while you made you way inside me.

But I didn’t, I laid there silently,

Accepting the fact that this is how my life is going to be.

Not a sound was made after you finished and left.

I laid there with the blood and sweat,

And I cried.

I remember everything about that night,

The night my innocence died.

it has taken me a long time to let anyone see me work, especially the darker stuff. every poem represents a time in my life.

Oh my gosh. As a writer you're incredibly talented. I'm so sorry that this happened to you though. And the future is bound to hold much better things.
