251 (who?)
Daddy likes to make me
Eat my words.
I see him hit Mommy
And I know she hurts.

So I tell him, to get her
He has to go through me.
And, well, I can no longer walk
And I can no longer see.

Daddy makes me eat my words
And reality starts to flood.
Yes, Daddy makes me eat my words…
And my words taste like blood.
Not sure if i like this one, but i LOVE the idea, simply because I got the idea from this amazing artist : :iconreniraiero:

Not only are your words in this poem simplistically stellar, but the skeleton of your poem is superb and deeply profound. I love how the structure is controlled at the beginning, IE. an ABAB scheme, but as it goes along there is less structure. It's as if the speaker has lost control of his or her emotions as the rhyme scheme in the middle changes and is more distant. Emotions seem to be reined in as the rhyming pattern becomes similar to the beginning.
Though this is only my brief take on your poem and from what I can remember learning from one of my college professors.

even if your dad hits you that's no reason to write poems about killing him. Please, let the authorities handle it don't kill your dad
