Scarred Me

I remember that day.

I remember it well.

That day I shattered as you watched as I fell.

We were all in the living room

And you stood by his side.

You watched it happen, so don't lie.

The day I broke my silence hadn't ended well.

Daddy slapped me across the face

And my world fell.

I ran to my room.

You didn't follow me.

I cried into my pillow

You didn't comfort me.

I laid awake that night, thinking.

Why didn't you save me, Mommy?

Or at least tell him it wasn't ok?

Am I not worth your words?

Am I not worth your time

Or your love?

You didn't save me

Like a mother should.

So you scarred me

Deeper then I knew you could.
