Anger - Poem by Bethani Ann DeLong

You amplified the television
To hide our shouts
(I was never sure from whom)
You locked the door
To keep me in or others out
(I was never sure which)
You took the key
To place it out of reach
(I was never sure where)
You smashed a glass
To show your frustration
(I was never sure about what)
You drew the curtains
And my blood with them
(I was never sure why)
You broke my heart
To prove I'd broken yours
(I was never exactly sure when)
