E.M McCarry


A Scream


There is this lady,
who slowly
breaks me.

I want to scream,
but I'll lose everything then.

And she lives across the street from me,
and is the mother of my friend.

I'm too young to hate,
and I don't want to hate,
but it's so dang hard.

I just want to scream what's in me,
but I'm afraid what other people will say,
especially her.

I don't understand,
why I'm scared to know what she thinks of me,
I shouldn't care at all,
but I do.
