A Dream (?)

A beautiful but dark poem highlighting the issue of domestic violence. Gently brutal.

Phoenix With A Pen

In the dead of night,
Under a moonlit sky,

I had a dream
About you and me.

I saw you hit me.
You beat me.

You didn’t even stop
When crimson clots

Were beginning to appear,
All over my skin.

I woke up.
In a pool of sweat.

But was relieved that
That was just a head trip.

Until one day when
Like all my other dreams

You turned this one too
Into reality.
