Rescue Me


I only hear loud screaming,
His footsteps stomping up the stairs

What should I do?
I’m scared

My bedroom door slams open,
My body shakes as if I were cold

I know what’s going to happen,
It always does

Slammed against the wall,
Falling to the floor

Slapped across my face,
Make-up will not hid these marks

Mom’s at work,
Nobody here to save me

I want him to stop,
Only feeling more pain

I’m sorry,
What did I do wrong?

Tears come,
Still nobody here to save me

I beg him to stop,
Hits me harder

Mom’s back from work,
Bruises all over my body

Stares at me,
does nothing but walk away
When will it end?

The firste stock-father of gentleness,

Virtue to love, and vices for to flee;
