    :teach:


    When water burns like fire
    Tempers rage
    Abusing verbally and physically
    Those most helpless, but within range
    Perception lost in the rapture of misery

    When life overwhelms and the “vile”
    Becomes the only solution
    Illogical though it may seem
    Dangerous words are spoken
    Far-off, bloodshot eyes speaking volumes
    Numbness of heartfelt emotion,
    Silence, Then a mother’s cry

    With hopelessness,
    Faith’s forgotten,
    Laughter becomes infused with
    Shouts of anger
    Methodically drifting in and out of
    Destructive natures,
    Self and family abandoned by the lies
    Of addiction.

    When things are so wrong they seem unnatural, yes, this gave me an unsettling feeling, on point.
