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?
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 hope my words still haunt you;
That when you take your final breath
You will be alone,
And I will laugh.
2009; I walked away
