Can I Scream? by WhiffleChix
Your hand crashes down on my spine
And I want to scream so loud, but I think my lips are sown shut.
Cover my head, and move away.
Too fast for me.
A slap in the face, and I want to scream
Because I've done nothing, done nothing.
Heat and hurt and red and raw
It's hard to breathe, but I think my lips are sown shut.
Hurt. Hurt. Spine, face, shoulder, arm.
A million hands on a million limbs.
Can I scream? Can I scream just for you?
Can I run? Can I run just for you?
I'm sorry, I just hate school, Dad.
How'd you find out about my skipping school?
A scream tears from my throat.
And you back away, like I'm a cat that lashed out.
Never heard that before, have you?
I hear it in my closet, fabric between my teeth, and I let it out there.
I hear it everyday.
What did I do, Dad?
Yeah, kinda dark >_< Comment, though.
