Dysfunction

There is love
But there was this
The hunger for validation
With words and with touch
Sparks in the midst of raging flames
Happiness that wavered
Faded
Rose from the ashes
Yearning for affection
Attention
Recurrent anger
Raised voices
Deafening silence
Crying
A great deal of it
Bitter
Ceaseless
Little warmth to thrive on
Fear
Questions
Animosity
Selfishness
Hatred
A great deal of it
Neither knew compassion
Neither extended forgiveness
Forgetfulness was nonexistent
Memories overflowed and drowned out what little hope there was
There is love
But there was us
