Father

written by: Camille

Daddy do you see what you have done?
Bitter poison covertly injected and you -  the anesthetist.
Confusing madness for wisdom - malleable child of so few years.
Your drip drip drip - black wax fills my ears until you are all I can hear.
Volcano erupting - dam bursting - no time to run for cover.
A bottomless pit of disappointment - your face a sour craggy rock - hard and impenetrable.
Blank as walls when the tears fall from this 10 year old's eyes,
Watery jewels that sting, sharp and acrid, blinked quickly away in military style.
Emotions deftly covered, assume the rounded shoulder of defeat.
I will never be free.
