AS ROCKY AS THE GROUND

Escape —
That is all I could think —
I must get away
For a few hours —
I must think,
Alone,
Someplace desolate,
Some place where
He isn’t.

He hammers at me
Like I am a piece of wood.
His voice reverberates
Off walls,
Off my brain,
I can’t think,
I can’t just
Be —
We are as rocky
As this ground beneath my feet.
