Superhero

June 14, 2011
I used to dream that you were a superhero
one who loved and remained devoted to me.

I used to dream that you were brave and amazing
like the other children's fathers.

I wanted to believe you loved me so badly,
but now I feel as if you left me...

I used to dream that you were a superhero
and it broke my heart when I realized you weren't.

I used to dream...
and now I just wish...
you would stay out of my dreams
because they're scaring me, Daddy...

I used to have good dreams,
like all the other little girls.

I used to have good thoughts and ideas and intentions,
like all parents hope their children have.

But now I feel like you knew your end was coming,
and you just abandoned me,
like yesterday's garbage.

I used to have good dreams,
like all the other little girls.
