Noisy Lullaby

When it's dark; real late at night.
I don't sleep; I hear mommy and daddy fight.
Screaming and swearing erupt.
I cry in bed, it's just too much.

Name-calling and door slammingis my bed time story.
And i never get tucked in to bed.
Yelling down the halls is last the thing I hear before I give into exhaustion.

Tonight there is no lullaby, just another drunken fight.
And only nightmares visit in the night.
This are the secrets the I keep.
And the reason I cry myself to sleep.

    AWWWWWW! Emily i know how you feel. This has happened a few times to me. People you care about fighting at night is hard to deal with.
