dormant acts

dearest diary
there’s nothing much to tell
an inquiry:
why do they have to yell?

i write into my journal
i keep on dreaming
“everything’s normal”
they keep on screaming

i hear yells and shouts
comming up the stairs
“leave me” i cry out
holding back the tears

they keep on screaming
i wish for it to end
i’m barely breathing
goodbye, my good old friend
