Come out

In my head you're always there,
I walk around hoping to feel your stare.
But you're never there, you never have been.
Don't you care?
You're a mystery, you're a ghost. Come out, come out.
You're my dad, you are part of me.
How am i to be?
You're supposed to love me, and protect me from bad.
Its like a game of hide and Seek,
I have to search; i hope you don't cheat.
You're not here, You're not there.
Come out if you care.

In response to your comment to read your poem: I really love your rhyming, and as the person below said, hwo you concealed who you are talking about.

I like how at the begining it feels likie your talking about your like ex-boy friend and then at the end your talking about your dad. i like how you care about him and then your dad really doesnt seem to care about you.

I can sort of relate to it. Very deep and emotional. I, too, can feel the speaker's confusion. Great work :D

i like the braking rhyme sceme, when you hit the words that do rhyme it makes them ring in you head, quite moving
