Father, Father

By PastelSkeleton

A father making false statements in a courtroom

A daughter crying on a bathroom floor drawing in red with a silver pen trying to escape the flashbacks

He'll never truly understand what he did to her

But she'll always remember

She is disgusted with herself

The only person that wants her body is her own father

All the other boys look at her as a disgusting cutter

She thinks to herself 

"That's all I am..."
