I Was Sitting Here, Thinking . . . .

I was sitting here, thinking
Ruminating actually
Remembering

When I get to that part
Where his face contorts
Into a hateful mask
And I know he is going to choke me
My memory
It is clear to me now
Watching that horror show
From a safe place now

I was sitting here, thinking
Speculating actually
Recollecting

When I get to that part
When he first grabbed my hair
And slammed my head into the wall
My memory
It is clear to me now
Watching that horror show
Like it was someone else

I was sitting here, thinking
Forgetting actually
Burying

When I get to that part
When I found the courage to leave
To save my son from the drunken violence
My memory
It is clear to me now
I am strong
That is why he beat me

I was sitting here, thinking
Planning actually,
Formulating

When I get to that part
Where we started our new life
Without fear, filth and violence
My memory
It is clear to me now
We are happy
We are free
