This endless rain is falling,

Every dusk when night is calling.

This vicious cycle circling ’round,

Until one is six feet in the ground.

 

Before he even enters the fight has begun.

An utterance of words triggers the rerun,

Of many nights before and many to come.

Different but not, the argument is never done.

 

The child prays to not be afraid,

As she holds tight to both her French braids.

Mommy please stop! Daddy please no!”

But the cry is unheard,

And she’s forced to listen to every word.

 

There’s no hero to save her, not even unsung.

Only her teddy to which she clung.

Feeling no hope inside,

Silently, she escaped and cried.

 

What awaited ahead was pure solitude,

Where all her unheard feelings brewed.

Although alone, the fight rages onward.

In her mind and also out yonder.

 

She hid by the window to drown out the pain,

As she sat trying to focus on only the rain.

Screams that poured through her ears,

Were they fading after all these years?

 

This endless rain stays grieving,

Everyday that they’re still breathing.

This vicious cycle circling ‘round,

Until one is six feet in the ground.
