Punishment

A wrong word uttered
Evil thought processed
Misunderstood action
Important moment forgotten
‘I’m sorry’

Been let down,  attacked
Unwanted advance
Nasty words gifted me
Over again;  must be deserved
‘I’m sorry’

An empty stomach
Blood drenched skin
Push away loving arm
Prescribed, dutiful punishment
‘I’m sorry’

Self Destruct

An extra bottle
Out late and alone
Disregard for safety
Intimacy with someone shady

Another meal skipped
Four days without food
Nourishment nauseate
Weak, dizzy, shakes disorientate

Blade passed across skin
Longer and deeper
Spark satisfying flow
Punishment for own greatest foe
