hell is a simple thing


i know what Hell is
Hell is a father who walked away
it is a mother who left you behind
Hell is the ranting of a drunken man
close to your heart, but not worthy of your bed

Hell is the sting of a switch
slapping, stinging, cutting away at you
it lies in the hand of a cruel caretaker
Hell is the screaming of a woman
not worthy of life, but not worth a bullet

Hell is a man who is meant to love you
it is realizing this man does not
Hell joyously lives in the betrayal of the heart
it lies beside you in the night
sleeping peacefully in your in your marriage bed
feasting upon silent tears, till the small hours come
