Glazed by potent whiskey
his eyes narrowed at her
From somewhere inside him
came words she believed to be
how he truly felt
She became what he named her
cold and uncaring
heartless bitch blankly staring
She shut out the fear of blood---
"Its yours or mine
Push me over the line
One of us will die tonight.
The time to choose is here
You decide or I will
either way there's something to kill
Its me or that devil
who swims in your glass
But keep your eye on us both
you just never know
It could come to pass
that you choose the drink
and continue to think
I'll take the hits and cry
Cry I might
but one of us will die tonight.
I've learned your moves
timed your steps and
measured your reach
oh the things that devil can teach
to those who beg to know
So look at me through that glass
enjoy that whiskey...
it'll be your last

Thanks Denise and PDV. I wish more women would stand up to the jerks, but I understand the fear as well. Sometimes the risk is too great, and just leaving is the best option.

Caroline: A woman deserves better than to be the target of some small man and his anger...it takes courage but the peace is worth it...I treasure my first night of safety...

Very powerful and emotional. The imagery this one presented could be felt as well as seen. Nice job
