Childhood memories

Childhood memories
Black night dreaming
Shadows on the windows
Car lights dazzling
Little fingers blocking ears

Menace from within
Dishes smashing
Crying in the kitchen
Silence after
He's now throwing a tantrum

Father's now speaking
He is leaving
Bruises plain on her face
She sleeps with us
Until he comes back again
