The words stream from your mouth
Vitriol with no limit
Spewing forth, a vomit contaminating me,
Shredding my self-esteem
Shattering any speck of dignity.
The stench of the attack
Cuts me to the core
Leaving me a hollowed husk.
I cower in the corner of my mind
Powerless, paralysed with fear
All I can do is wait for you to tire.
When your tirade is exhausted
I am left alone
My mind working at nine to the dozen
I ask why?
You seem oblivious to any consequences
The desire to dominate far exceeds
Any understanding of what might be
The long-term results.
Love disappeared long ago
Replaced by the tantrums
The little hard done girl
Now in the body of an adult.
As I predicted you are alone
Deserted by those you should have nurtured
They avoid you, frustrated by your obstinacy,
But in true form, you have replaced them
Pseudo friends, pretending to be,
You claim it was never your fault
‘They should have known,’
They are the selfish ones
And so the acrimonious vomit
The same stink, different flavour,
But consistent nevertheless.
