Family gatherings can bring out the worst in us.

Unhappy holidays

by Knighteagle

The author has placed a warning on this post for violence.
It's your degrading tone, not your views.
That make me dream of your face in blues.
A painfully deliberate slow stranglehold,
Exhilaration as your legs begin to fold!

Dilated eyes wide, in panicked shock,
All these years I've tolerated your mock.
Wild muscle spasms as you try to speak.
This time, to much to turn the other cheek!

A glimmer of hope your eyes reveal,
As a couple of breaths I let you steal.
Ten years you've enjoyed the taunting,
No longer my holidays you'll be haunting.

A decade, poking the monster in the cage,
Adding fuel, and fanning the flames of rage.
Unbridled anger has gotten the best of me,
Was it worth your grouchy life as a penalty?
