Fear of home

You run in fear.
You walk in fear.
You hide in fear.
You show in fear.

Life of a nightmare.
Is like one of those nights that never ends.
One you can't escape.
One where your worse fears are your reality.

As day after day.
You're reminded of your mistakes.
With the scars you try to hide.
The bruises you lie for.

Your tear scared faced.
Puts on a fake smile.
A fake laugh.
A fake story.
That hides everything.

That all disappears.
When you walk in those doors.
And nothing you do is right.
And he reminds you.

Your pillow soaked.
Your cheeks scared.
And your drowning.
In a float of water.
So deep.
With the tears you always cry.
