Daddy

You lost a daughter

the day you choose

them over me

over us

The day you turned your back

and left us

And I awaited your call

anticipated the knock on the door

for your return

but it never came

I feel like a fool

defending your honor

in the face of my mother’s well deserved spite

in the face of her pain that she hid behind words

Now I stand before you

No forgiveness lurking behind my eyes

Only distrust and acceptance

of the chaos that you have left and brought

once again into our lives
