Father father


Father, father.
Your screams ring in my ears
Everyday
               Your screaming
                                     Gets worse 
                What did I do?
I'll never know.
Eyeliner runs down my face
Mixing with these bitter tears 

Father, father.
Why do you hate me so much?
What did I do?
                       To make you
                                           Hate me
                        Am I really 
That much of a 
Disappointment to you?  
I guess so or you wouldn't scream

Father, father.
Would you be happy if I was gone?
If I was dead?
                      No longer a
                                        Bother in life
                      No longer a
Worthless
Unwanted daughter,  
Then would you be happy?

Father, father.
These scars aren't what you think
Theses scars are for you.
Every scream
                     For every
                                    Single cut
                     Wanting 
Death to come
Just to make you happy. 
Would you be happy?

Father, father. 
How would you feel?  
Would you regret it all?
Would you
                  Regret all of 
                                      Your rage 
                  Becoming 
Screams
Screams that pierced my heart
With every word

Father, father. 
Would you cry at my funeral?
She'd a single tear over me?
Would you
                Beg for me
                                 To come back?
                Who would 
Your rage
Turn too next?
Yourself?

Father, father. 
I'm not a perfect little girl.
I'm seventeen now.
I don't need 
                  To take your
                                      Shit anymore
                   So now I'll
Go.
I won't be here to bother you anymore
Then will I finally have made 
You proud daddy?

poet Dante Gabriel Rossetti

Your eyes smile peace. The pasture gleams and glooms
