Five-Finger Kisses 🖐

A Poem by El Blue

"He came home as usual. Dressed in his soul ..." - (18+) Audience

"What we want is
Someone to be naked with
Not only in body
But in soul”

                   
                      J. Iron Word


He came home as usual
Dressed in his soul, like a rabid dog
Bickering and cursing as he yelled out our names
One by one in a certain way
Drunk
In a pitch that if I had to draw it
It would have the closest resemblence of a spiked prick-bar
And we would tremble …
'Cause he had beaten the dog to death a month ago
Who used to sniff him out miles before he got home
So we could escape, out on the back door
But we didn’t have that luxury anymore
So I kissed my sister on her forehead
And she kissed my five fingers on my hand
Then I walked out to greet the man

“B***h come here and take my shoes off!” he growled
As he unbuttoned his pants
“Take it off yourself and take a cold shower to come off your high!” I replied boldly
So he beat the hell out of me to break the back of his beast and pushed me to a chair
“Put your hands on the table” he sputtered, so I put my hands up there
“Choose m**********r!” he crackled through his teeth
And took out a flashlight, a crowbar and a hammer
I chose the crowbar as it was the heaviest of them all
And he could hardly bear to hold on to it
He didn’t like it at all
So he made sure as the crow flew
To feel my every bone in my hands as they stuttered
At the very end of the table where he taught me how to write

As he got older he got weaker
His health deteriorated
And he could hardly stretch his arms out as I measured his heartbeat every 3 days in a row
And I searched his eyes in silence
All the way up into his spine
And he was so mad as f**k about it
Like a wrongly shot hog in the ire

“What the f**k are you staring at?” he used to say
“Are you lonely? Go and make your own memories, b***h!”
So I have learned to kill the light in my eyes long ago
Staggering and searching since then
To light it back up again
But it’s funny
How certain memories stuck with you
Mine was those five-finger kisses from my sister

Shattering. How people survive such environments is a miracle.
