Raising stakes

Poetry By: Kalika997

A short poem about domestic violence from the viewpoint of a child.

Listening to raised voices

Anger, hate and fear

Pretending that it's all ok

Pretending I can't hear

A crash and a scream

Something fragile breaks

I cry and hide in my bed

They must have raised the stakes
