One more tear,

One more broken smile,

One more stifled sob,

What is it to you?

The same as me, nothing,

You do not care,

You do not feel, do not breathe,

You cannot,

I won't believe you can do both,

Destroy me, but do not try to be my father,

Or be the dad I want, and stop this pain,

Make it go away, the way they tell me you should,

I plead, for one hug, one moment of acceptance,

Please tell me you are proud, just once,

I could live with that, one good memory,

Instead you break me,

Hate me, burn me, bruise me,

Kill me,

Just make this stop hurting,

Because the pain you inflict is worse than I can take.
