"Where were you?" he screams, ignoring my tears
I make no excuses I have no more fears
I know whats coming next so I wait looking into his eyes
This time I promise myself I will not cry
He continues to yell raising his hand, ready to strike
I don't even move this time I won't try
The pain doesn't come I'm numb to his blows
I give up standing, falling to the floor
His anger is gone he leaves me alone
I get up and pick up the phone
I think for a moment then put it back down
Wondering how long it takes to drown...
I take some meds out of the cabinet
Hands shaking as i pour out a few caplets
Bottle says "take no more than one a day"
I take them all and slowly the pain fades away...
