Summer Huggins


Father


You said little girl don’t worry things will change
I put a mask on my face so you thought I believed
I walked around with a knife in my pocket just to feel safe
You had a look of danger on your face

Where were you?
Did you see the tears run down?
Did you know the blood stained my body?
The scars left such a sad memory
Its imprinted in my mind
Never going to leave till the day that I die

Was I a thought every time you took a hit
I died a little more when I watched you leave
I walked a dark and lonely path
I had only me and that was it

Where were you?
Did you see the tears run down?
Did you know the blood stained my body?
The scars left such a sad memory
Its imprinted in my mind
Never going to leave till the day I die


Your fingers like snakes wrapped around my neck
The blade of promise ending everything
That you held so perfectly
Only a stare of coldness in those icy blue eyes
Seasons change all the time
But this summer turned so cold



Goodbye for now my dear father.

Poem of the Day

poet Robert William Service

Just Home and Love! the words are small
Four little letters unto each;
And yet you will not find in all
The wide and gracious range of speech
Two more so tenderly complete:
