Revlieved And Lucky

Revlieved And Lucky

A Poem by AquaWriter

Relieved and Lucky

A sip of whiskey,

A shot of rum,

The strike of a match,

The puff of a new cigarette

 

He cuts the pill

Then snorts its “glory”

He tries to cover it with a sob story.

He has become jittery and racist,

I become frightened,

We are going to his home

Mother drops us off

He is taking me to my friend’s party on his can-am

She leaves we are alone

We go into his home

Do you want something to drink he asks

No I reply.

 

He lets in his dogs

Big teddy bears

I befriend his dog to protect me if he comes near

I try my best to hide my fear

 

The party started 30 minutes ago

I’m feeling tense

He sits on there on the couch

And says there are a few bills to pay

There are a million there.

 

Minutes tick by

I'm afraid for my life

He doesn't seem like the same person I knew when I was little

Two hours later

He is ready to leave

I am reassured all is well

He starts his bike

The way he walks and stumbles around frightens me to death

My legs feel like thread

We get on the highway

Finally we get to the party

My body aches with pain from the bike

My heart is pounding

 

     I have never felt so relieved and lucky in my life

The anticipation, the fear....how awesome! Whoops, sorry, should be more formal. Any ways I love it so much! It's great, real great, I can really put myself in the girl's (is it a girl?) shoes! Wonderfully written with wonderful details. Fabulous work!
