Surviving Demons.
My best friend-
We've been together since middle school.
My partner in crime,
During high school.
We've been through alot of s**t,
She and I.

She used to come to my house
Didn't matter what time-
Sometimes it was,
Morning.
Sometimes it was,
Night.
Most of it was so she,
Could escape her abusive father.

During summers-
We'd tell her mother
We were "staying at my cousins."
Or "we're going camping."
In truth she was running,
From her father.
And I, hiding from mine,

Our Fathers' would've been best friends-
Though hers was more mentally abusive.
He would say things like,
"One cut, just cut yourself once and i'll stop."
Or "No one will love you, you're dirty and sccard."
His personal favorite,
Which got her every time was-
"One small cut for one person you want save,
One deep cut for two people you want to save."

I remember him-
Trying that mental abuse,
Bullshit on me.
It had no affect-
For what he didn't know was,
My father was really good at keeping,
His promises.

If my father said he was going to,
Punch-
Kick-
Stab-
Shoot-
Burn-
You or those you loved, he did it,
If it meant it would,
Cause you pain or suffering.

Regardless
She and I survived-
We faced our demons
We conquered.
Her demon in jail,
My demon was given 
The death penalty.
Our past made our,
Friendship stronger-
A unbreakable bond.

She is my-
Friend.
She is my-
Sister.
I am her friend-
I am her sister-
We got each other backs.
But most importantly,
WE ARE ALIVE.
