i remember always trying to shine
so that you wouldn't find fault
with my clothes, my music, my friends
i remember being happier
when you screamed and yelled because
it felt more manageable than the silence
i remember lying in my bed
in the dark, flashlight under covers
writing poetry on tear-stained pages
waiting for the day i'd be
old enough, strong enough, brave enough, good enough
to walk away and never look back
