Slowly But Surely

You turn the lights down,

How romantic.

But something I'm not sure of,

Is seeping out of

Pools of blue and silver

As you stare at me

The cracks between the tiles are so cold as you push me to the floor.

Your voice is chilling,

More than cold.




I can say it in so many languages,

But you don't hear me.

I start to cry for help,

My cheek stings now.

Slowly but surely

Slowly but surely

Wow. I actually sat in my chair thinking for 15 minutes because I've never written something so powerful…
