I hear her breathing behind me,beside me, inside me...

I remember when love was in your eyes.
You were so beautiful
with painted lips and crimson nails.

I was so lucky then; so lucky.
Though mouths did frown,
Heaven was unkind.

Your love came with a sting from the knuckles of your fist.
If only I could scream or cry
but my mouth forever silenced.

A shrill note pings
deftly inside my head.
Cutting my skin with it's sharpness.
The color is shocking
Is blood.

No one is here to bandage my hurt
I hide; this room is dark.
I hear her breathing
behind me
beside me
inside me.

I tremble because I am hunted.
No one is here but me and her to hear my whispers...

I scream
so loud
I am loud.

I hurt but hurt goes away if I wish it enough
And I do but she does not hear
I laugh a hollow laugh..

Because the truth is..everyone hears.
In an instant I am crouching in the darkest light I know.
Your silhouette...MOTHER DEAR.

this piece is so sad, because it is so prevalent. so difficult for parents to hold their tempers with their little ones, and so many are so hurt instide from past hurts that they simply must pass it on, regardless of the eventual cost to their own souls. you express this ably, and even though it is such a stark and hurt-filled scenario, your wordsmithing is direct and to the point, no frills or sidebars necessary.

No child deserves to go through this. A very sad, chilling and compelling write.

" ... Your love came with a sting from the knuckles of your fist.
If only I could scream or cry
but my mouth forever silenced. "

Great write, Robin! God bless,

Very Powerful and So sad. You really captured the horror of the cruel way of "love" ... Your love came with a sting from the knuckles of your fist.
