Battle of the Roses
The seashore rages
A lonely night
Angry regrets
Memories flooding
Drinking after work
Tired, impatient
Hollering
Peace, quiet
Cursing cruelly
Screaming obscenities
Children hiding
Shaking, violently
Anger explodes
Shattering dishes
Chasing after her
I want to break her neck
Out of control
Pushing, shoving
Angry, spit spat
Slap, shit
Scream
Slap
Crack
Scream
Silent tears
Unforgiving
Angry rant
Courage on fire
Broken nose
Fight back
Hushed children
Fitful sleep
Apologies, excuses
Beg, plead
Threats of divorce
Regrets flood
A Dozen red roses
Battle of the roses
Breaking my heart
Gone forever
Heather Mirassou
