Happy National Poetry Day: Without Knowing

He did, as he always done.
He frustrated her in ways I would never dare,
He loves her, and she hated him for loving her.
Her mouth, like daggers.
words thrown at will, piercing flesh, degrading the man he is, a taste of his own medicine that would take longer to heal for she felt embarrassed,
Used,
Weak.
And as I laid awake in bed, everything moved in slow motion.
This is not my battle, yet I am scarred,
This is not my voice at its full range yet, I feel the strain
My hands, now a fist
My home, now troubled.

He did, as he always done.
Showing his love in ways contrary to what I imagined,
The films, the flowers,
Happy ever afters, I found difficulty in sleeping that evening and so,
that evening.
I done, what I had never done.

Rummaged in the dark and I began to write.
My heart, pressed between each line, I felt guilty for cursing.
I am 12, and at this age I still loved penguins, collected POGS - Judge Dredd comics and now, began to write poetry,

Without knowing.
