What Happens At Night

May 7, 2010

"I learned from daddy every night



He beat me to a pulp.



So now I'll do the same to you,



You worthless, little, punk."



As his hand collided with my face



I turned the other way.



As my cheek faced to the east,



I heard the small boy say,



"I was meant to have a feast



It was my special day,



Instead I just got bruises



And on the floor I lay."



As he hit me again, I just felt sorry



For the poor boy beating me



All he wanted was a feast



But daddy wouldn't let him be.



"He hit me every night



Just like I'll do to you now



It had to end though, I tell you



So I put the gun to his brow.



Tears fell down my face as he explained



What happened late at night



So I let him beat me


Even though it wasn't right.

This is really amazing... very intense. I love it. You have alot of talent, and should definitely keep writing.

This honestly made me cringe while reading it, and I'm not the kind to usually get emotional over writing, but You really made me think about my childhood, and how i got beat just about everyday. That's talent... You have heaps of it, sir. :)
