Hurting The One you So called Love.

Hurting The One you So called Love.

A Poem by Dawn
"

Inspired from the poem "the plate A Poem by Juliespenhere" Came to my mind. From some events, I saw as a child.

"
She is only five in her mind's eye again
and can remember it really clearly.
Like that very day it happened.

The day she saw her father grabs her mother
by the neck in front of her.
And squeeze tightly around her neck.
And fear and piss leaked down her legs.
Screaming for all her worth.

To let her mummy go.
You're hurting her.
Daddy let go, please. Daddy.

And her mother's skin
changing colour before
her eyes.

He did let's go.
As he saw his daughters face
as she walked in the room.
And smiles at her
and then suddenly walks off.

He went missing all day.
That day.
Straight out the front door.

Mother was trying to catch her breath
and me comforting her asking her if
she was okay?
And getting her a glass of water.

She was so busy when
she regained her composure to comfort me.

Saying baby it's okay. I am okay.
And smiling at me.
To reassure me everything was okay
As was she.

No kid or human being should be treated
like this let alone see this.

almost like Gwendolyn Brooks who could write from the perspective of any age...
this has that tone, sound of someone five years old writing it.
so the daughter is able to go back to that exact day...and write the piece as if she were writing that the day it happened.
i like this one...it involved me.
