where are you?

I don't know you.

i don't even love you...

might as well hate you while I'm at it.
I don't think i hate you...
but then again
you were never around enough to completely h-a-t-e.

maybe that gives me reason..... enough......
thinking about you makes me really debate.

Why'd you leave me daddy,
i was just your baby girl
and i miss you i love you
god why'd you leave
it's killing me
why was i born
you were stupid
you made stupid choices
and now here i am
wishing i'd had a dad.

some version of something that mildly even represented
some form of a father figure
in which i found stability wouldn't have been too bad either.

but nothing,
how should i act?
[please come back it hurts so much]
It must have been my fault
otherwise it doesn't make sense
and I'm a broken person,
here we go
leaving me a broken person
[where's daddy mommy? ]
i can't help wondering though...i just can't
{He's gone baby girl...he's gone...)

    This has a lot of emotion in it. They way you penned it together made me feel the pain of an absent father. (Report) Reply

    The pain you feel is expressed very well in your write. May you one day find what you are seeking. May peace and joy fill your once again soon.

Poem of the Day

poet John Clare

I love to see the old heath's withered brake
Mingle its crimpled leaves with furze and ling,
While the old heron from the lonely lake
Starts slow and flaps its melancholy wing,
