No Longer Your Daughter

I memorized your schedule
Monday, Thursday, Saturday
One a.m. to one p.m.
Then gone
You said you were there
But you never were
The whole in my closet wall
The secret in your steering wheel
The bag in your nightstand
Now I know
A white powder filled the air
It consumed your body
A green lump I found on the table
A tablet you called your “Happy Place”
Now I know
You’d only come running
When you needed something
When it was all gone
You still hadn’t won
You switched to liquid
A deadly desire
Your daughter’s face
Begins to fade
Now who do you blame?
You played the devils game
And now that you lost
Your daughter pays the cost
