Drowning

Reeking of alcohol from the night before

Memories flooding back

The screaming and words of hurt

Mascara stained eyes.

******************************

How did she get here?

The dream of happily ever after

A distant life once lived

Head in her hands, sobbing.

********************************

Her son the only reminder of love

Getting him ready for school

Does he feel her fear?

Fear of her loosing herself.

*********************************

Under appreciated

Resentment

How can she breath in this current?

Threading water.

*********************************

Topping up her glass

Just to take the edge off

So that for a moment

Reality leaves.
