I Hate You

By
I hate you for destroying my family
Ripping out the broken seams that held us all together
Destroying the bond we shared



Your strong harsh words


Tainted my heart


And broke the glass that shattered my soul


The wounds you inflicted


Physically
Emotionally
The people you scarred
Physically
Emotionally
The daughter you abused

Physically

Emotionally





Moving Houses




Split Parenting




New families

I hate you for ruining my life
What seemed to be a fairytale life
Was shamed by your careless practices
Triggered by misogynous concepts
And the presence of your favorite beer


Look what you've done to me
It's hard to trust
It's hard to love

When altercations arise
The flashback starts



Your angry face



Your painful smack


I hate you for what you've done to me.
I hate what you've done to yourself.
But most of all, I hate you for destroying my family.
