Never Again

Her face was contorted with fury
She was as angry as a bull
Her checks flushed 
And her eyes sparkled with ferocity
Walked in through the front door
At a snail's pace
My head facing down
Avoiding direct eye contact
She came closer
My heart started pounding
Pounding at what is known as the speed of light
She lifted up my head and said
This is not Gods plan for you
She walked way to her bedroom
I stood her
I froze
Paralyzed as if I had no control over my body
My heart tore into tiny fragments 
And I thought 
Physical hurt was much better
A better punishment than guilt
From that day on
Never shall I dare
To go against her wishes
