Daughterprey | A Poem

deeply within

I never questioned

your reasons for

tormenting me

because you taught me that I

myself was the reason

because I was

because I am


you observed my face

and thought no


our home

was your backstage area

where all the masks fell off

and nobody would ever believe what we saw


when you were begging at my door

for forgiveness

whilst you were still posing a threat

I’d have done anything to make you disappear


from you

I learned that

my body was robbed of its boundaries


figlia di papà,

figlia di papà,

figlia di papà,

you make me sick


you created us

to destroy yourself


you made sure that

your grave

was big enough for all of us
