I Won'T Lie - Poem by Fae Sebastian

I won't lie to you
And say I've never cried
Nor will I insult you
By saying I never will
Because truly, just your presence makes me want to
Just seeing your face
Seeing you expect me to love you
To let you hug me
Kiss the top of my head
Like fathers usually do…

But I won't lie to myself either
And say that I would do that
Nor would I insult myself
By saying I would stoop to that level
Because I will never grovel for your affection
I will never look at you, and show any love
At least none beyond that which a daughter always has for her father
I will never let you near me, not again
Never let you in my life
Like daughters usually do…

I won't lie to anyone
And say I have any affection for you
Nor will I insult them
By pretending that I do
Because that's not who I am
I am not weak
I will never stoop so low
Never beg for your love, your time
Never ask you to see me as important
Not like a daughter usually would
Never mind… most daughters wouldn't have to ask.
