Missing?


Missing?
My father yells.
I play and listen.
My mother cries.
Same
LEAVE ME ALONE!
My ears fall with my love,
My heart fills with hate-
No, not hate but nothingness instead.
TIMES UP!
Yelling, screaming.
I can't hear over the glass shattering.
I want to get away, I want to hide, and I want to run but I stay.
We all stay.
I do NOT cry, I yell
I'm scared.
I think about when I'm older.
I think of all the father/daughter dances and dinners
But time dies.
But hate builds.
But tears fall.
And my heart breaks.
I wish I had a father who was there.
The connection broke,
Along with my heart,
For everyone with fathers,
You are in a lucky spot.
Strong but broken.
