    twisting and turning
    gnawing on my empty insides
    your name on her tongue
    brings thoughts to my mind

    she ate all your lies
    and called me to say
    that his life is looking
    better and better each day
    he's got a job
    he saw his daughter
    he doesn't rob
    he won't slaughter
    a pat on the back
    is that what he's after?
    39 years old
    just figuring out what matters.

    i can't erase this image
    from my head
    he's dipping and dabbing
    the words that she said
    so how good is his life
    if he's using cocaine
    i smile to myself
    may all his days rain

    i don't feel remorse for
    wishing these thoughts
    i could have killed him
    and never been caught.

    instead, it is me still
    carrying the pain
    the one who has nightmares
    and calls out in vain
    the one who remembers
    watching you struggle
    trying to help you
    grasping to pull you out of the rubble
    it is me you hurt with
    your words and fists
    for the things you have done
    I can never forget.

    The things that another person can do, that breaks more than our hearts, sometimes, our will. Sometimes we have to let go of the hate before it eats us up inside. This was intense scribing.

    Didn't even know I had this much anger in me still. Since having my son I blocked all of these emotions and when I heard his name spill from my friends mouth and I guess they came rushing back. Thanks for all your words.
