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: 
My family
