Secret Sins Of My Father

Alone you crept
Alone I wept
Oh Father,
the secret sins
I kept

The Father, who
Took my first kiss,
then sucked away
all my bliss
The Daughter, who
had to be dissed,
then locked away
in the mist

Tell me,
Do you remember this?

How you,
dear father caressed my breasts
with your fingertips?

Please say you remember this,
When you,
my father pressed your tongue
through my virgin lips.

Can you Confess this?
Or only Detest this?
When truth is..

Alone you crept
Alone I wept
When Father,
They were Your sins
that I kept

Exposed my eyes
Preached those lies
Pushed aside all
My Taboo Cries

Now you shall die
Where my
Scarlet Letter lies

Down through the dirt
Where you'll surely pay for my hurt
For the daughter's cries will be heard

Poet's Notes about The Poem

Obviously this is about my father and me, but the point of this is to show that in the end the Devil is my savior and hell will be my justice. My father is responsible for his actions alone, not the devil, not a demon and defenetily not me. My dad beat me up more often then he ever molested me, but that will be for a different poem. And maybe in another poem I will reveal more emotion about how I felt about this situation, its still hard to do now.

    Another very well written poem of yours! Keep it up.
    It is sad to know that there are people who actually do such things...horrible actions that should never have taken form in existence...

    Nevertheless, as a poem, you have done a wonderful job...again! (Report) Reply
