Untitled Prose by euphoriaThe sun was stretching in its bed below the horizon when she slipped from her bed, careful not to disturb the covers around her sleeping husband. Wrinkling her nose at the stench of stale alcohol that still emanated from his open, snoring mouth, she tiptoed out of the bedroom and down the narrow hallway. Her eyes were red and her muscles were sore from spending the night curled into a tiny ball of despairing rage. She used to think if she curled tight enough and cried hard enough, his insults and drunken tirades wouldn't harm her.

Aged Innocencemy hand has been frozen herewrapped around a doorknobI wasn't strong enough to turnand yet peeking out the frosty windowi felt him pull on my shirt tailand as I turnedI looked into a pair of my own eyesand saw into the soul of four-year-old innocencesuddenly aged as much as I.(why have I not seen this?)I'm praying for a nice daddy.His words would have made me turn the knob,but the look on his facehad already opened the door.
