sorry i keep reposting this, i kept finding ways to improve on it, and then the typos were bothering me. *awkward smile* anyway, this is the product of my writer's block struggles, so ik it's not the best i can do but it's what usually gets me through the dry spells

a house that once was home
& a family that never truly was
a castle fit for the happiest people
just a facade, now reduced to
an empty wooden chest
not a soul in sight
inside, walking bodies
shattered stained glass
of a brother & father,
a mother & daughter
but a traitor's escape
locked the prison gate
and threw the key away
hopeful strings unraveled
and braided around our throats
bloody bones shattered
all that remains is dust
slipping through the cracks
but now, lying in the sunlight
with nothing left to offer
i long for the mother & best friend
who spoon fed me soupy porridge
dusted with stardust and silky dreams
taking the only home I'd ever have
"for my own good", she said when she left
how could she lie to a child who thought
she was everything?
empty promises lay broken on the carpet
speckled with sanguine rage
she made me to leave me
knowing full well it would break me
so why do I still miss her?

her wrath

    Replying: Thank you for your comment on my piece. Um... I always try to listen to all sides of the story. The reason I posted that poem was not that I was simply feeling attacked by that. I needed to express how this person had made me fell on multiple occasions. Our most recent argument was what I used to write the poem. And as I will tell everyone who... was angry at me for feeling this way: I do not feel more attacked than black people. I simply feel attacked. This girl, instead of trying to explain things to me like you and others, just yelled at me and attacked me from every side. Again, thank you for your comment. I will continue to research and read the pieces that have been recommended to me. I hope this explains a little of what I was trying to say in the poem.
