Hug My Knees To My Chest Hoping To Drown Out The Rest

I hug me knees to my chest
Hoping not to hear the rest
They yell and scream and fight
Well into the night
Let me go
Back into the flow
Please stop yelling
And stop telling
I cant breath
The air is tight
No one is ever right
They continue to fight
I hug my knees to my chest
Hoping not to hear the rest
Please stop
Please stop
My silent prayers just fade away
Nothing is to stay
My brother moves to the side
In one direct stride
He yells shut up
There is the banging of a cup
I hide in a blanket
Please stop
Please stop
I sliently pray
To slowly fade away
The silence is bad
Everyone is mad
Then the yelling starts again
The mom is yelling about men
I hug my knees to my chest
Hoping not to hear the rest
I squeeze my eyes shut
My heart is cut
I run from the house
As silent as a mouse
I cry and cry
As my spirits die and die
I am so mad
They are so bad
They make me so sad
I sit down
Face stuck in a permantant frown
I hug my knees to my chest
Hoping to drown out the rest
It echoes in my head
It weighs me down like lead
I hug my knees to my chest
Hoping to drown out the rest.

Really good - I love this! 10.
this is so very sad, so emotionally draining, so well written. Pitiful that this really does happen night after night in more homes then we'll ever know. Hugs, marci. :)
