Dad

By heart_rhythm

Why is it that when I try to forget,
All I can ever do is remember?
What you did to me I shouldn't have let.
Suppressed emotions inside me you stir.

How could you do that to me; shatter me?
All that I wanted was for you to care!
Why for my safety did I have to plea?
Killing me from inside; how could you dare?

I wish I had never met you at all!
Didn't have the courtesy to vanish.
Do you take pride in pushing till I fall?
From my memory I try to banish.

Meant it all when i said "go away",
So why is it in my head you still stay?
