fake family


if you really cared

you'd care about me

if you really wanted to reconcile

you'd face your sick actions

but you don't care about me

you're using my dad as an excuse

for not coming earlier

asking my mom for pity

and she gives it

she's an escape route for you

a way to not face legal consequences

a way to keep me silenced

real family would have tried to make things better

don't spin it on me

after all I'm the victim.

  • Comment from author about the poem: like fake friends, but for family. if anyone else but my family had assaulted me, we wouldn't be having this conversation. it would be immediate legal action. because it's family, now all of a sudden I'm supposed to have a different reaction, though the crime was the same.
