He broke me

and controlled me with drink after drink.

I can't remember what happened.

I want to remember what happened.

What did he do to me beneath the sheets?

My memory shows bits and pieces--

the removal of clothing              

the removal of self              

drunk and dirty and pained.

My mouth is always sore, and my lips still bleed.
