What have I done… he will know about it!
Should I lie and cover with deception?
I know not how he feels, no perception.
Nor to drinking today does he admit.
He is getting closer; I can feel him!
My legs are weakening; my mind, it throbs.
Perhaps I can plead through desperate sobs?
The aching of my heart fills to the brim.
He is here now, sudden as an earthquake.
He tells me I am worthless as I weep.
The sound rings loud as my heart and bones break.
The pain of his blows slow to a dull creep.
It leaves me to wonder if I shall wake,
But if he is there, I shall stay asleep.
