My father
Father of mine
I hate you, hate
That you act like some 'emo kid'.
You say you’re alone
But I’m right here
Mom’s right here
My brother’s right here
I hate you, hate
That you can’t see past your self-pity
You make me suffer
Make life tougher
I hate you, hate you
Hate you I
Love you.
Wish that you would stop feelin’ down
Listen to your family.
We love you
I hate you
I hate that you can’t see
Past your own self-hate
To see what you have done.
I can’t believe I hate you
I won’t believe I do.
You’ve scratched my soul
With your blade of depression
That I want to dull
I want to snap it, make you blissful
But I can’t
Only you can make the choice
But before you decide look at me
You’ve ruptured my heart
You’ve splintered my soul
And I want you to know
I do love you
But I need to know
Dad
Do you love me too?

This is absolutely beautiful. It's one of the most honest, open, true pieces I've read on this site. Amazing job. I'm so sorry if you've actually suffered through that. My favorite part was "You've scratched my soul with your blade of depression that I want to dull..." That's so descriptive and perfect for this poem. Outstanding! Keep writing! And please check out some of my work! (:

btw, is this from personal experience? I have never met anyone like the father in this poem, but it makes me realize that there are some who are in this situation.

Yeah it is from my experience. I wrote it when I was really mad at my dad for the way he was acting (depressed and angry all the time). The last straw for me was when he said he was alone, but my whole family is here for him.
He's actually a great Dad, I just can't figure out why he acts the way he does sometimes.
Thanks for the comments
:) Nick
