I Want...

I want my eyes to be blinded,
Leaving me unable to see the horror
That these two people create
With their children in the next room.

I want my ears to be blocked,
Leaving me unable to hear the shrieks
Or the sound of breaking glass,
That explodes from their room.

I want my mouth to be stitched shut,
So that when others ask how things are,
I do not have to lie,
And say that everything is fine.

I want stronger legs,
Leaving me able to run away from this hell,
To a place where I can find peace
And never look back.

This piece was not inspired by one specific event, but by how many children have parents that are unfit for the job, or that fight constantly.
