Daddy's Little Girl

December 8, 2008
By Lesli Schilperoort, Sunnyside, WA

The hair in her eyes.
The cuts on her wrist.
Hurt from the lies
that she couldn't untwist.

Her broken heart.
Her bruised knees.
Waiting in the dark,
"oh daddy, please."

Over and over
the hurt and the pain.
Hidden by the cover
and nothing but remains.

Unloved, Unwanted,
All gathered in one.
Everyday being haunted,
everyday with no fun.

Daddy's little girl.
She hates the title.
He grabs her curls,
her life ended, Fatal.
(c)2008

This poem was straight to the point and had a horrible twisting end I loved it
