Cutting ties.

Where blood is thicker than water,
Where the lies are thicker still.
A tangled web, layered so densely
Light can no longer pass through.
Selfishly spoken in self preservation,
Piling them on, increasing the tension.
Warping the mind of an innocent child;
Do you understand the monster you made?
No warmth.
No care.
Just a constant cycle of bitter battles,
A never ending warfare.
Tiresome tongues exhausting ears;
Manipulation, abuse and violence
With no understanding of love.
I wonder what you see in the mirror
Or are you all too ashamed to look?

I won’t fall victim to your twisted mess.
I cut myself loose,
Escaping your perverse universe
- I am better than this!


I hope my words still haunt you;
That when you take your final breath
You will be alone,
And I will laugh.

    full on.
    a darker, more intense expression of my own sentiments vis a vis FAMILY!
    you have a lifetime of constant work to return to the beautiful, natural place within you (assuming this piece is inspired by your own experiences) that does exist but has been distorted by said family.
    I fully believe humans were fucked up the jaxie by aliens a considerable time ago cause there could be no other explanation for the dysfunctional DISASTER that is the family (not always, but distressingly commonly- bad sentence or what!).
    I like your writing.

  • Thank you, writing has already helped me so much – its my own little bit of therapy.
    Haha, it does make me wonder what the hell happened to result in the twisted excuse for people that I am unfortunately related to! Thanks again for reading :D xx

    Walking away is the hardest thing-Hoping he knows how you feel.

  • Haha I’m sure deep down he does, I screamed it at him loud enough. However, I do believe he presents an image to others as completely innocent and instead says that I am warped! Oh well, I am happy and truly know who and what I am, I guess he just can’t face himself yet. Thank you for reading xx

    brilliant writing about something I have felt in the past. Just that I walked away from her.
