Trigger Warning: This poem deals with issues of Domestic Violence and Abuse.


sleep eluded me
last night
the myriad of anxious thoughts
and the violent thumping
on the walls
racing ruminations
of their cause
each loud bang
and boom
reminded me
of the painful past
when all was quiet
still
the echoes
thudded
on the walls of my mind
flooding my senses
adrenal glands throbbing
in anticipation
of what comes next
