Tonight I Write

Tonight I can write the angriest lines

 

Write for example “ I am the wind howling against your window pane

Waiting for it to break like how you broke me

 

The yelling swarms around me with no intent of slowing down

 

With every door slammed and holes added to the walls

My childhood slowly disappears one by one

 

I hid in the cold dark closet with my hands

firmly pressed against my ears that they become numb

 

The anger I felt was exploding

An explosion so big that you could feel it rippling through you

 

You were a pollution that invaded my mind and soul

Always killing happiness with your hazardous chemicals

 

You make me furious even to this day

 

You are not my father

You are just someone who helped give me life

You will never be a father

This poem is about: 
Me
My family
