Daffodils Look Lovely Today

March 17, 2010
By , Manassas, VA
They’re yelling again
Echoes bounding up the stairs
They could reach me in my sleep
But I lie awake with despair

It’s safe to say I don’t like this
But it’s how it’s always been
Didn’t know what a father was like
With or without him

I don’t remember much
And that’s partially what haunts me
The lightning in this house
Barely in my memory

Never together were they
I can’t remember an “I love you”
It doesn’t matter anymore
Lost his house, wife, and my respect too

I wake up to hushed venom
Can’t pretend to be asleep
You didn’t know my mind
The lyrics I now keep
