Stifled by your emotion
stunned into silence


I wait for the tears to flow
But instead I receive an
angry slam in my face

The door crushes my finger
and you laugh


Sometimes I wish you would
just keep drinking
until the bottle swallows you whole

dear jackie
this makes me sad not just because of the one from where this poem came but also where it reaches.
