A Poem by allison

I glared at the wall across from me, the green paint chipping off
you could only see small of amounts of the original color
everyone still looks at the facade color
made to match perfectly with it's surroundings, until someone new comes around
another color to cover up
the tinted yellow light flickered above me
the past touches of unfaithful women snaked up my spine, their breath against my neck, nails digging into my forearms
I slapped my forehead until the whispering became static
I sank to the floor and stared at my cloudy reflection in the mirror that was poorly propped up against the wall
my jaw clenched as I watched my own blood shot eyes widen and twitch
I could hear stomping grow louder towards the bathroom door, incoherent screaming from another room drained out the sound of my struggle to breathe
I squeezed my eyes shut and punched the tile of the floor until my knuckles bled and all I could hear was ringing silence filling up my ears and drown out noises that weren't there anymore
I opened my eyes, let my body go limp and hit the cold floor
the light flickered a few more times before it got brighter
I stared through the crack beneath the door, my pupils dilated in and out
the bulb burned brighter
I closed my eyes as my body crept into subconsciousness
the sound of a bulb popping echoed in my ears
