Sitting in the dark

Listening to them yell

I watch from the stairs

This is my hell

Am I the reason?

That they always fight

What did I do?

That causes this every night

Watching from the shadows

Every night each week

It starts to get worse

Coming to a peak

Daddy leaves through the door

While mommy’s eyes run black

Where is daddy going?

Will he be back?

Rushing back to my room

Hopeless and sad

Under my blankets

I cry for my dad

Our world
