Hello Darkness

By midnights voice

Hello Darkness

Hello darkness he comes again
His fist clenched tight around
the stick and stem

He is angry but he knows not why
All he wants is to hear
me cry

And the sound of the whip on flesh
is burned into my ears
and on oozing mesh

For what was I guilty of this time
It doesn't matter he says
you never mind

His fist up against my eye
Gut punched so hard
I couldn't cry

Slapped as hard because
it felt so good
A broken arm because I never

All the while his anger bleeds on me
On the ground his boot
Has it's way against my knee

And the end never comes
before daylight
Not until I understand all his might

And I'm left alone
in fear
And silence

    This is real, its cold, its life for many. I think that this is darker than "On The Loose" and the picture, oh the picture. You make us think
