Free Verse: Why Did I Do That?

REBECCA TUCKER

I’ll hang my head in the bottom drawer because she’s the only one who knows
That the Abuse is happening just few inches from her handles and there I am next to the music completely faded away just like I’m just another half note in the melodies that make me alive
I am alive through the crutches I hold tight in my mind
I think I need them but I long for the opposite
I’m not just another darkness, parts of
Me have light
Especially with a lighter
The books will be written and the songs will be composed out of the substances that are taught as a sin
Gateway to the shiny golden gates of a new life
Life is forgiving and there’s Your second chance
Maybe third or fourth
But who’s counting
