Holes— a Free Verse Poem Response

#POMprompt 4 — Intrusions

Child-sized hole in my living room wall.
The intrusion of truth, packed in with syrupy lies.

Hole in my bedroom wall, this one I saw him do.
He could not explain that one away.

Holes in my life, shattered like drywall
in the midst of his anger.
