This is about my dad.

You can pretend all you want that

It’s all our fault

Blame me,

Your sixteen year old daughter

Blame her

The wife who supported you

That you call abusive and

Throw painful words at us

Hypocritical angry words streaming from your mouth

But I won’t believe the lies you scream at me

I won’t succumb to your anger because I’m better than that

I won’t believe that you are some tortured hero because

You’re not

You cause my tears and shake my heart with fear

And your empty threats hurt and the tears keep streaming

Down my face but you’re too busy with your own fantasy of your torn apart life

That you don’t even see me

You can’t hear me

Love turns to hate and sunlight turns to darkness in your

Presence

You leave us here

Alone
