Trigger Is Pulled

bytheoncomingstorm©

Father
Pulled the trigger
In the blackened doorway
In the midst of a fight
Because mother opened her legs to another

Mother
Screamed in pain
Against the broken window pane
As the bullet ripped through her flesh
Because father had anger management issues

Daughter
Wept silent tears
Hidden in the closet
As mother fell through the window
Because she stepped back in shock and fear

Babies
Cried into the blanket
Held against daughter's chest
As the bang of the gun filled the air
Because it was a broken home

Neighbors
Called the police
Spectators in the safety of their homes
As the sirens screamed out
After father had run away

Family
Torn asunder
In the midst of turmoil
Father behind bars, mother in the hospital
Because they weren't meant to be parents

Another memory I'm trying to "erase" by inking it out
