Treasure Island

Vianca Borrero


Im Yelling at you
You yell back at me
I scream at you and tell you to back off
You grab my wrist and enter my space
Your right next to me
Pressed up against me
I look up into those eyes i hate
You look down at me with this werid look
I know this look
Its the look
I try to free myself
I hear her foot steps
'whats going on? '
Your back is to her
She cant see your little smile
You let go of me and turn
'she was misbehaving'
She goes around him and questions me
I try to explain
She doesnt listen
I shut down
I know what happens next
'no dinner for you go to bed'
i dont look in her eyes and walk into my room
I hear them walk away
I stand by my window and look up
Tears fall
I see bars appear on my window
I see bars appear on my door
Im locked in
I don; t have the key
Only he has it
Im just his toy
He always wins
He always smiles
He pretends during the day
He becomes his true self at night
I look inside the trash
Beer glasses
Tonites going to be a bad night
I cant fight anymore
I cant scream anymore
Im just his toy
His little plastic doll
I dont control my body
I dont control my life
Im trapped
Walls closing in
I stare up at the sky through my window
The sun starts to fade and the night starts to begin
I start to shut down and sigh
I know whats coming
I lay in bed and wait
Im just a doll
He controls the game
Im just a doll
I feel nothing
I am just a doll
What can i do?
Night falls
My hell begins once again

Poem of the Day

poet Alfred Lord Tennyson

It little profits that an idle king,
By this still hearth, among these barren crags,
Match'd with an aged wife, I mete and dole
Unequal laws unto a savage race,
