+ Fav Poet


his violence cannot be tolerated
with his roaring and breaking of things
we cannot stand the noise 
he causes while throwing furniture
and personal items like the wind
tossing memories aside like
they never mattered
violating our presence with malice 
while having no care
for the safety of others
showing no concern for their feelings
never mind the hurt deep inside
where wounds cannot heal
pain caused by passion of 
betrayal like no other
goodbye is the only answer
leave behind the tormentor
to his own demise  
show no fear but look within
you are brave and strong
see delight in his absence
giving you a future  
be a survivor
