So easily you get up and walk away after you promised to stay. How could you just leave us there alone and broken, it's been months since we've spoken. It isn't till now that I realize how much I miss you, how much I care, but tell you this I do not dare. For you're the one who caused so much pain and on my heart you left a stain. What do I do now? I do not know, but can you at least answer one question...why did you have to go?

I wrote this piece after my step dad left us, i'm hoping that there are other people who can relate to this who have had people come into their life for a long time and than just leave.

If this was set up like a poem it would be much better but I love your emotion, My dad left when I was like 3 or 4 to be with another women and I see him maybe twice a year.

I honestly can't tell you that I know how you feel, but I'm sure I've felt pretty dam close. Before I was even one years old, my mother cheated on my dad while he was at war. She let her new boyfriend beat me and my sister. Nobody told my dad. Nobody cared. Now whenever I think about what she did, I feel a loss, for the mother I wish I could have....
