Why do I Hit You So

Razor's edge makes lines on the mirror

Bullet in the barrel tantalizes

Adrenaline rushes

Euphoria beckons

Grace reaches out

Always reaches out

But can you feel it?


No food on the table

No money in the bank

Eviction notice on the door

What am I here for?

Grace reaches out

Always reaches out

But will you receive it?


Whiskey bottle hasn't been touched

Explosives strapped to your chest

You walk into that crowded place

Handgun, loaded in pocket, just in case

Grace reaches out

Always reaches out

But do you get it?


Can you feel it?

Will you receive it?

Do you get it?


Why do I hit you so hard?


Adrenaline rushes

Straw snorts

Euphoria beckons

Pull that trigger

Release that bullet

What will you feel

As it passes through your brain?


Why do I hit you so hard?


Always reaches out

Grace does.

    Uwe WOW This is a powerful and emotional write. Every line is filled with anger and frustration that the reader can feel coming from way down deep inside. Nice job
