Favorite Quote:
You won't always have someone there when you fall.


Year after year, and you’re still gone
Letter after letter, and you aren’t here
“I’m sorry” written in ink,
Cannot sew together the scars you left.

I was only 8.

Day after day, and the pain is still here
Tear after tear, and it doesn’t hurt any less
“I miss you” smeared in ink,
Will be how I tape together my scars.

I’m almost 17 now.

I wrote this for the "Ink It" contest. My two wonderful english teachers shwoed me this contest and encouraged me to submit a poem. I wrote this poem about my dad, it's been almost 9 years since I've seen him. I miss him. I hope people can read this, and connect with it.
