I stay up most nights waiting for him.

Years before he used to disturb my sleep.

I know nothing of sleep anymore.

I stare at the ceiling waiting.

The door begins to open.

I used the start shaking,

Today, like yesterday, I'm still as calm waters.

To no suprise he's drunk and loud.

Mom hears him but she won't move.

I used to scream but learnt no one was listening.

I used to fight back til the bruises got questioned.

I lay there and let him proceed.

Don't worry about me , it's daily routine.
