Yelling
Screaming
A girl crying
She’s in her room
Crying into her
Favourite toy
She’s fifteen
But she can’t help it
Her parents are fighting
Again
It’s been like this
For over two years

Crash
Bang
Something’s broken
Mum’s voice gets louder
Dad matches her
All over an earring
All over

Thud
Slam
Dad’s out the door
Where did he go?
Will he come back?
The girl sits and listens
Tears flowing freely
Her dad starts the car
And leaves
He just leaves

Gasp
Sob
Her mum’s crying
The girl comes out
Of her room
Tears drip silently on
Her pajamas
Drip
Drip
Drip
Her mum’s sobbing
She doesn’t notice
That the girl’s there
Until it’s too late
The girl runs to her room
Crying
She didn’t notice
Until it was too late

Being fortunate enough to be in a close family, I have no idea how this would feel.  However, this is touching and is perhaps the faintest glimmer of understanding of a painful ordeal.

I do, for lack of a better word, enjoy the use of onomatopoeia (spelling?), and the short lines truly present the message faithfully.  Excellent work, in my humble opinion.
