He was long gone from the room, yet in her deep fear Lucy could still hear him.
His liquid diet fueled anger was screaming at her mom now, her frail voice begging him to stop while he smashed another glass against the kitchen floor. Though Lucy knew that not even calling the police helped, as last time when she called them her mom lied that nothing happened while covering her bruised wrists, just because she still loved him.
He was not her father. No more lullabies in her soul as she prayed God to simply take him away one day.

Your Name

door handle

I’m in love with the light in you
with your name engraved on the handle
that opens the door of my heart

I’m parting the ocean of the past
white at the left, black at the right
here I am in between smiling at you.

Entangled souls mating in an old door frame
having lost the skeleton keys
for their door that opens enigmas.
