In the stillness of the night,

I hear stumbling footsteps.

Cuss words hang in the chilly air.

Darkness greets my fear-laced eyes.

There is drunken laughter and

The stinking smell of cheap cigarettes,

 And throw-up, beer-tainted  breath.

I freeze and I can’t make a sound,

Hoping against hope it’s just a dream.

Moments seem to stand completely still.

My breath hitches in my small throat

And fear squeezes  my beating heart

With such a painful cruel twist.

Terror coats my mouth in sticky paste.

My fists clinch the covers tight and 

I can hear my raspy breathing slow

In the velvet darkness of the night.

A shadow, enters the doorway with a laugh,

And lurches towards the filthy bed.

The bed creaks as she finally sits,

Weaving, drunkenly, back and forth

Like a cobra does, before it strikes.

She leans over and says in slurred words,

I love you,unaware of her  cigarette

Burning, soft, youthful, tender skin.

Her teeth stand out in stark relief,

In scarlet painted lips that leave a smear

Of lipstick across my rigid face.

I pray silently to Almighty God,

Please, make her go away.”

And mercifully, He does.
