To Prove that you are a Man

Photo my the Author

Broken GLASS smash

Against her FACE,

Proves that you are A MAN.

Held in your HAND,

This is your WEAPON.

An EXPRESSION of your mind.

The Bottle strikes against THE FACE,

THE MACE,

YOUR TOTEM,

Knocking at the door

As she falls to the floor.

Watch the BLOOD

cling to the surface of the GLASS.

NO FRICTION

to represent YOUR RAGE.

The blood is on ONE SIDE.

To prove that YOU ARE A MAN.

Is this how YOU MAKE A STAND?

a child holding YOUR HANDS

crying

you chide him.

He trembles with FEAR.

But you do not hear HIS CRIES.

These are your POSSESSIONS.

It proves that YOU ARE A MAN.

The cries will never GO AWAY.

She said, LET HIM!

Her words more startling than the lightning strikes on STORMY NIGHTS.

And i was the LONELY VOICE,

The little voice you tried TO STRANGLE.

i can still feel your rage.

i can still smell YOUR BREATH.

The stench got beneath MY SKIN.

You cannot HEAR,

But INSIDE.

i STILL SCREAM,

in the night, knowing that YOU ARE ALWAYS RIGHT,

makes this world a FRIGHTENING place to be.

I need COMPASSION.

Monotony FILLS MY MIND.

Infused in the air,

i am DRUNK,

FLUNKED,

BUNKED,

You called me the prodigal son

because I showed affection towards my mother

Alas, your empty words no longer frighten me.

They are empty just like you.
