Mommy, Daddy, are you okay?
You haven't talked at all today.
Mommy, Daddy, can't you see?
You're really starting to hurt me.

All you do is scream and fight,
and I hear it all throughout the night.
Sometimes I think my eyes will run dry,
yet whenever I do, I just continue to cry.

"She doesn't care about any of this, she'll be fine by tomorrow!"
Daddy, you don't know how much your words fill me with sorrow.
"Can't you just be civilized?! Stop acting like a child, and apologize right now!"
Mommy, please don't make this worse, or I'll run outside and hide in the snow.

Mommy, Daddy, I wish you would just stop everything and be happy again.
I'm hiding under the blankets, writing these words down with a pen.
Mommy, Daddy, can't you see?
You're tearing my heart into one, two, three.

A piece for each of us, a piece of my heart,
the beating has stopped before it could start.
Two sections I wish I could install into both of you,
yet I'm afraid I have not yet found the proper glue.

"It isn't your fault, so don't let his words get to you."
I know, Mommy; they're not supposed to be true.
"In these moments, he just directs his anger at anything in his sight."
Daddy, please stop this man that isn't you; it's giving me a fright.

Mommy, Daddy, I want to help you both so much...
But all I can do is use my pillows as a protective crutch.
Mommy, Daddy, when was the last time you both kissed?
Don't you realize...that your love is greatly missed?
I know it's taboo to write stuff talking about your feelings and putting them on dA.

But you know what?

Last night was hell for me, and I'm going to vent.

Just because I'm as old as I am doesn't mean these fights will not affect me.

As long as I'm there to hear them, they always will.

Edit: ...my God. This made the front page.

And so many people are commenting with such amazing, inspirational, and amiable things.

Thank you. So much. To everyone.

I hope if anyone else is going through this as well, that you find luck in your situation.

:heart:

I know how this feels. I grew up with my parents cursing and fighting a lot (and they almost separated like, three times, thank God they didn't).

Uhg... boohoohoo TT^TT Made my heart cry... Why there's so many parents in this world that just fight and make their children feel uncomfortable and feel pain and above all they don't realize that?! >xc It's like you reflected my feelings with your words now, that also are your feelings. Thank you for sharing UwU

this actually is making me cry this is exactly what i wanted to say when i was 10 but was to stupid to. Mom is making things worse and is never happy and blames dad. dad blames mom and brings other women to be in my life. One almost tried to stab me. I feel like they are using me... and i just want to show this to them... but they will never understand its like i make a picture for them and they throw it in the trash

I've never heard of it being taboo to put stuff about your feelings on here. (If it is, I'm in the deep stuff :-s) But I really know what that's like - there's few things more horrible or scary than your parents fighting, no matter what age you are. The one good thing about it is that I would never fight with my husband in front of my kids because of how it hurt me when I was a kid. I really hope things get better for you soon. :)

I'm really lucky in that my parents have a wonderful relationship, but it really does illustrate the toll that kind of fighting can take on the children.

Wow, this was really good. I don't know what else to say. I find this poem relatable and I know what it feels like to just want the fighting to stop while parents think you're asleep and oblivious.

Honestly, I love the way you put the situation into proper words (because this is a topic I really can't explain in words) and it touches people more because it sounds so innocent and vulnerable.

This is amazing. I'll definitely be favouriting. :D And good luck and stay strong. I hope things get better.
