Once upon a time
Once upon a time

my daddy tucks me in
reading me a story
i fell asleap

two am
the house shakes
i lay in my bed
holding my book
daddy came in
he held me tight
I love you darling

he left

a crash of silence
i never got out of be
holding my book
for my daddy to come back

he never did

i sit there waiting
for my once upon a time to happen again

I loved it. You are right though about the not pulling the reader in. It's a sad poem!
