The words that don't make it out

Location

That's not what I ment

How did you get that from this

My words are getting bent

My message isn't being sent

I don't want to go through this again

Dad

I don't think that

I'm not just a brat

complaining about this and that

I just want you to understand

where I am at

Mom

i do care

Too much that's the problem

To not I can't dare 

It's not fair

to be in the middle of this affair

But I love you both

I'm one of five that does so

I am the oldest life 

An important role I was assigned

I don't take sides

but I'm accused of betrayal

In this continuous fight

Just forget it

my words seem to lack weight in meaning

they float away 

as I stand here listening

With my teeth gritting

and my mind screaming

 

This poem is about: 
My family
