In the dark I hide
Under the bed
As I watch his
Shadow go by
He's looking for me
So he shuts the bedroom door
He doesn't want me
To escape like I did before
These chills running
Up my spine, are
Causing me to panic
And cry at the same time
Daddy said he
Would stop drinking
Daddy promised that
He would try, but
I guess everything Daddy said
Was nothing more then a lie
When Daddy gets drunk
He goes crazy and
Hits and screams
He beats mommy
Until she's unconscious
Then he goes looking for me
I hear his footsteps
Throughout my room
He looks through my closet
While screaming,
"EMMA WHERE ARE YOU!?"
He's staggering and swearing
He wants to beat me black and blue
Daddy then screams loudly
"YOU EIGHT YEAR OLD BRAT,
WHERE ARE YOU!?!"
He bends down
And looks under my bed
There he finds me
"There you are!" Daddy says
He pulls me out
By my hair, instantly
He starts beating me
Without a care...
An hour or two go by
The beating is finally done
I'm lying on the floor
I'm bleeding and fully numb
My eyes are swollen and my head hurts
But I know Daddy
Is standing over me
He walks towards the door
Just before he leaves the room
He turns around and
Looks at me then slurs
"Emma, ya know Daddy loves you."
He shuts the door quietly
Leaving me on the floor,
Blood leaking along with tears
He might come back later
And beat me some more
My breath is getting shorter
This doesn't usually happen at all,
But the rooms starting
To spin and I can
Barely see my walls
I know what's next,
I know what's coming,
I know it's the end
Daddy if you want to beat me
You'll find out soon enough
That I am dead.......
Against family abuse all the way!!

I love the persona portrayed in this poem. It really hits close to home. (Not to me at all, just to my best friend's character.)

Oh she is, one of her characters has a very similar backstory to the persona portrayed, though. Even though he's not real, it still hits close to home.
