Shannon Nicole Poems
A Father Figure...
Usually a father figure would be someone that cares,
Obviously..Mine does not.
He'll visit once a month,
Not even that.
He questions why we'd want to speak to him,
Instead of saying 'I miss you.'
If we cry,
He just look right passed us,
And smile at his new wife and new kids.
A real father figure would look at his children with worry,
And just about dropp everything to know what's on their mind.
A real father figure would smile and tell his kids how proud he is,
Even if all we did was get a B on a homework assignment.
A real father figure would...
Drowning out all the whispers in my mind
Stuck in a nightmare
Its all passing by so fast
Living in the darkness
Among the dead
The lights are dimming as we walk
We step into the tunnel of my dreams
Everything has gone wrong
There are no happy thoughts
