living with a Monster

He was like Jekyll and Hyde
leaves one way
returns another
his breath was rancid with liquor
eyes redder then a burning flame
a hatred fueled by a neanderthal's brain
there's no place to hide that he wont find
wished I was the invisible man
silently I await for the inevitable
sound of shattered glass announces his arrival
taking my hair in his fingers I'm dragged across the floor
derogatory names I haven't been called before erupts from his mouth
the cat had my tongue which left me silent, fueling his rage
he beat me unconscious
I lay blood covered and bruised
the next day he's amnesiac
least that's his excuse
he's not only a monster
he's my Dad too
