That Day

September 27, 2010

hurtful words flung thew the air at rapid speed
one insult right after the next
foul words were exchanged
feelings were demolished
tears were flowing
the trembling of my body couldn't stop
eavesdropping wasn't necessary
when their speech is reverberating throughout the house
no stairs could be high enough
to ignore the pain that lies beneath
how could you say that?
and act so apathetic?
I prayed you were delusional
then you could be forgiven
but you're not.
and you won't be forgiven.
that day is engraved in my brain.
i saw a side of you i've never seen
and wish I never had to
i want to say i still love you
but that would be a lie
and what kind of granddaughter would I be if i lied to your face?
treating my father with such disrespect
after everything that he has done for you.
i hope you can forgive me,
I hope you can understand
that I will never forgive you
ever since,
that day.

Very casually written to let go of my feelings of a real life experience.
