Fight Club

Close your eyes and cover your ears
Shut your door tightly so no one else hears
The stream of profanity that fills the halls
Covered only slightly by the paper thin walls
Come out when the pain disappears

Walk away from the abhorrence of home
But then what is left to do, but roam
Aimlessly, endlessly
Incomprehensively
You find yourself cold and alone

Pick up the pieces of your broken spirit
Lock it away and never go near it
Until that glorious day
When you can finally say
That you have no more reason fear it.

This poem is supremely deep, and filled with meaning. It ventures to talk about and even describe a very serious subject that is often taboo: abuse.
