ThinVoid at PIVOT East 2014

I had already had a taste of his anger. I had felt it, every ounce of his anger, his disappointment and shame. I felt him hit me hard across the face. I felt my body falling straight into the hard cold embrace of the tiled floor below. I heard the buzzing and vibrations going through my cheeks and into my ears. But even with that anger that was so palpable, there was still a warmth and tenderness in his eyes, the kind that could only be seen in the eyes of a father. My heart lurched at the thought of them.
