    I stall out-another tough night, pleading
    Hiding my $10 stash, the only thing left after
    You saturate yourself in liquor
    The move where points wait
    And I am nailed down too long to be quiet.

    hush—remember he is not in his mind
    the empty feelings are just like hiccups
    ring- it not you-home is distant from your memory
    your feet smell of dirty dots of inconsistency
    and I wonder if I am trapped in prints with no directions

    no exit arrows or bedtime rubs, lavish gallons of water
    drink it down Shae- for your sugar
    you knew my remedy before I could speak
    just dropped kisses of goodbyes
    no time to ask me how my day was,
    or did I take my medicine

    when you care about me before you...
    in this marriage I am use to being the selfish one
    jumping on floated breath,
    bowed to my every command
    don’t tell a soul- you say…
    like I gotta hide myself a way from feelings
    in day light, ashamed you squeeze love juice
    to mend my soul

    Sigh…

    The only time I can feel your spirit is
    When you sober mind transfers into its lovely hood
    Becomes soft-spoken-no-longer-existing-RAGE
    From your 23 year old hibernation and I know
    Your hunger is looking for redemption,
    it rolls on my lap…

    and I don’t know who is sick; me for being in love with you
    or the thought that maybe you will change
