Mother

She is a menace to love and peace. A menace to family
life
and familial
love.
She fractures relationships. She poisons.
She is a selfish child. A mean child. A wounded child/woman.
She is a tyrant. She rules by fear.
She exhausts those around her until they submit out of weariness,
until they surrender to Her will. Until they retreat.
She is a bully.
A vampire. A dark cloud. A monster. A mother.
My mother.
