Stepdad

by Crybaby (age 15?)

He's like the devil's son, he'll be kind in
luring you into things, and then turns
around and yells and screams at you
at things you don't even do.
Tries to get you in trouble with your mom
and other people.
Tries to get you out of the house.
Threatens to kill you.
Threatens to chop you into little
pieces and scatter you all over
so no one can find you.
He says that the first person to leave is you.
He says he won’t leave, the person who'll
leave is you.
He convinces your mother that you’re
the one that needs to leave to get help,
but he’s the one that needs help.
