Suicidal Daddy

by Burning Angel   Sep 1, 2011

Why does it have to hurt this bad.
Daddy, all of this is making me sad.
Mom left so youre all I have.
I dont remember the sound of my own laugh.
Daddy, please, put the bottle down.
There is no need to frown.
I know we will get through.
Just like we always do.
Daddies, please, listen to me.
I know that this is hard to believe.
We never thought that she would walk out.
Daddy, we have no time to pout.
Why didnt she explain it to us?
She left at night in such a hush.
Now that bottle wont leave your hands.
And my wrists were sliced when this began.
Daddy, please, put the gun down.
We will be better off without her around.
Your drunk and confusion and hurt are taking over.
Dang it daddy, your heart is getting slower.
We will get through this.
You will find someone else who wont diss.
Daddy, I need you to wipe these tears from my face.
Seems my heart has lost its grace.
She isnt worth your tears.
It will be easier without her here.
Ten hours later alone in my room.
A gunshot so loud, you could hear it to the moon.
Storm out of my room and down the stairs.
I cried when I seen my daddy laying there.
Fall to my knees and start to cry.
I am alone in this pathetic life.
Beg this pain to go away.
But, there will be two lifes gone today.
Pick up the gun and begin to pray.
Forgive me, Lord, but without daddy, I just cant stay.
My life flashed before my eyes.
Trying to hide the tears I cry.
How could I be left alone in a world so cold?
Daddy never said he would leave and I wouldnt be told.
But the gun shot wounded not only him.
My body has already gone slim.
Put the gun up to my head.
Slowly realizing I will soon be dead.
Pull the trigger and to the floor I fall.
Taken in by cold and darkness, then I forget it all.

    I can relate to this, only dad left, and he is the one that is scares me that he's all alone and has nobody in his life now...i was there, but he left me, so i left him. i no longer feel tied to him, but now he's hurt cuz of loss, if he kills himself, idk what i'll do....because it'd partiallly be because of me </3
