Defeated beast

How many times can I type
that the eye lids closed
as the jaw is closed
shut so tight
the teeth clenched
I cannot get rid of you
Dear memory
Sad father
Angry children
What is it about me
My personality
That makes you think that this is okay?
I fight back the tears in class.
I’m sorry that I even considered
that streams could be okay in
this moment
but sometimes in this moment
this moment
I know nothing but the disgusting moment–
So I wait and wait for it to wash away
The tears so slowly
Twice today
No one
Not you
Not them
Saw me suffering
in silence
Lonely hunter
Quiet child
