I threw my fist at the desk my face slept on.
My face disfigured under the pressure of misery and tears.
I speak through teeth. "You run away, because you're a coward."
Tears are streaming, unraveling into an ultimate truth.
My lungs prepare, taking in all the air around me.
The words scrape my throat:
"YOU'RE A COWARD!!!"
The message echoes through the house.
It's just her and my hatred.
My chin is soaked.
My expression falls into a flat frown.
The house is engulfed in silence.
I am alone.
