Living in an alcoholic home.

Last night I hear the screaming

Same as the night before

It won‟t be long until things get violent

And the police have to come once more.

I curl up in my bed

Scared, sad and alone

No matter how hard I try

I cannot escape from the world I have become trapped in.

I pretend that I am far away

Anywhere but where I am

If I can just get through the night

I might be able to survive the day.

The screaming continues for hours

Until early morning

You finally pass out but it is time for me to get up

Another sleepless night for me.

Yet somehow I must find a way to face the day

As I slowly descend the stairs

I wonder what damage I will find

Trying to shake the disturbing images

From my already troubled mind.

I walk through the remains of the night

Broken glass, beer cans, shattered chairs

I see a hole in the wall and wonder if it is old or new

Not that it really matters.

It is the same scene every night

It starts as soon as the sun goes down

The sound of beer cans opening echoes throughout the house

As if they were bullets piercing me into a terrified silence.

I know tonight it will al start again

And all I will be able to do is wait for the morning light to save me.
