We live with them
Eat with them
Even sleep with them
They are family
Our biggest fear is
Believing that they exist.
Silently lurking in the shadows
Of our rooms.
They watch from a distance
Waiting for the perfect timing
To grab you and deal you.
We call them family yet.....
They are the ones destroying us
Screaming and shouting, yet your voice
Bounces of the prison they have put you in.
They smile at you, saying everything will be alright.
Meanwhile ripping you of your innocence.
They molest, harass and manipulate.
They kick you down ,and turn around
To pick you up with a smile.
These are our silent killers
