So This Is Home

So this is home,

Where the sounds of angry voices echo through the walls.

They fill her head again till she can’t take it anymore.

The voices getting louder and angrier.

They are yelling at each other.

She can hear a high-pitched voice and a deeper voice.

The girl cracks, screams “stop!”

The voices are quiet and the only sounds left behind are the slam of the front door,

And footsteps leading up the stairs to the girl’s room.

So this is home.
