Severed

a poem by Melyssa G. Sprott, USA - poetry writer, author, poet

I
demand
that you have
respect and be
cordial when in my
presence. I don’t keep ties
with insolent, mouthy swine.
I don’t care who you think you are—
you are nothing and no one to me,
whether you are my family or not.
Everything changes and still stays the same.
If I weren’t your daughter you’d forget
my name and the pain you’ve caused me.
I am equally compelled.
Palpable hatred
of this dead-broken
family tree.
You all hate
what I
am.
