Parents & Their Problems.

Spare me, I need to let this out.
I haven't written in almost a year..

This house is hell when they fight.
I see the door shut when I creep by their room at night.
I know this is only the beginning of the despair that awaits.
Hiding in the darkness, what becomes my fate.
It's never been easy.
It never is when two people love each other.
Outside forces pressing in, separating one from the other.
And I just stand there, letting it all sink in.
Let it eat away at me, until there's a hole that won't mend.
"This happens all the time, lots of kids go through it."
I think over and over in my head.
I've always been thankful for the happy family we were back then.
But I can't stand the thought of the world crashing around me once again.
My family has always been my base, the one face that could never change.
And here it is, crumbling faster and faster as time slips by.
If it's not one thing, it's another.
It causes me to think two people are never ment to be with each other.
I'm losing faith in love.
I'm starting to think a real family doesn't exist in today's society.
I look at their faces, praying for hope.
But all I see is misery and sadness,
I feel guilty if I were to mope.
One just wants to be on their own,
Independence is all she craves.
She has changed, he hasn't.
All he wants is her.
He just wants to be it for her.
He's going to be all alone without her.
And here I sit, contemplating who this is hurting worse.
I can't decide with my teary eyes.
She has decided to tough it out for my sake.
He wants her out just because he can't take seeing her face.
Knowing he can't be with her like he wants.
She still loves him, she says she always will.
Love is so much more complicated than ever between the two.
At this point divorce seems more like a piece of paper,
Not an option for peace.
