Dear Grampie - Poem by Shelby De Coff

dear grampie,
i cant hold mi self down nomore
i just wanted to escape
you know?
i wanted to breath
iv always fealt as iff i was trapped
trapped in a small room with noone to remember
sometimes i wonder what today would be like
iff you were here beside me to guide me
when you first passed away
i could feel you
the wormth on mi hand
on mi shoulder
the wormth in me
the wormth of your love
telling me everything would be ok
but this shit just got worst every thing is falling apart
it dont matter nomore who i loose in a life time
because i know
that no matter how much i dissapoint you
ill always have the warmth of your love
holding me tight
at night
i cry
thinking of you
when i was little i heard the yelling
the crying
i seen the bruises and the tears that were shead
and when ever i closed mi eyes
the screams echoed in mi mind
except when you held me
id close mi eyes and the night mares would go away.
everything was forgotten
everything was ok.

your little girl aint so little anymore eh?
im a discrase.
look at me now.
the tattoos the scars the makeup
all to hide the pain i truly feel.
lying stealing cheating.
iv become someone i never wanted to be.

sometimes i sit alone and cry with the lights out
replay me n u in mi mind
i was so happy
id do anything to be with you now.
at least for a moment
just to tel you i loved you

some times i wanna scream
only to waist mi breath and realise after no matter how much i srceam
youll never come home

im sorry grampie
for what ive done
for what i have become
i love you grampie
and i miss you.
