Where Did She Go?

She stepped outside
I felt anger but showed nothing
She came back inside with one last cough to clear her lungs
She looked at me with glazed eyes
"Are you mad at me?"
She knew how it made me feel
But she did it anyways
Angry tears spilled
"I'm fine"
She walked away
She didn't have anything to say
"I'm going out"
I nodded
She didn't think I knew
I was dropped off
She picked me up later
Reeking of booze
I sighed and left against my will
She told me about her night
I nodded listening
It's sad knowing
She chose it over you
She'd rather get high
She'd rather drink
Where did she go?
The mom I knew
