Cloud 25

Enormous.
The ego.

Bacardi on his breath
Anger in his heart

No one has ever showed him an ounce of love

But you don’t miss
What you don’t know

Tears fall on the dinner table

He grabs her hair from the scalp
And gives a hard pull

Her options?
Fight or flee

She tried the latter

But knee met mouth
And she felt two teeth shatter

She hit the ground–hard
Blood pouring out her mouth

And crawled on the floor in pain
Towards the couch

She screamed 
“I can’t take this no more–I want out”

But those are words that stay stuck in her head
She’s scared to say them out loud

He might hit her again

So she goes to cloud twenty-five
Closes her eyes
And dreams her life away

So she goes on cloud twenty-five
Closes her eyes

And hopes she doesn’t wake up
