Some Things Even Daddy Can't Fix

bytheoncomingstorm©

Daddies are the heroes
In most little girl's eyes
They can do no wrong
They can tell no lies

Their kisses heal all wounds
They can fix anything
From skinned knees to broken toys
They know how to soothe the sting

Daddies are the Prince
Little girls hold in their hearts
They are that voice of solace
That sets them apart

That wasn't my case though
My dad was behind bars
From just a little tike
I bore those scars

My dad was the monster
That hid under the bed
He was the nightmare
That got trapped in your head

He's the one they warn you about
The one that makes the news
The one that leaves a trail of blood
The one that leaves a hidden bruise

While most daddies kissed away the pain
Mine was the cause of my agony
When others ran to daddy for protection
I begged for mercy on bended knee

If he came back now
I'd still live in fear
Even if he was a changed man
That monster in him is always near

From a broken body
To lost innocence
To every shattered promise and dream
There are some things even daddy can't fix

Very moving

Sincerity in a poem cuts across everything. The impact of the poem is enormous.

It may be churlish but I think the flow of the poem falters in the last three verses. While some jaggedness can emphasire,more...

Another Glimpse

At what has caused all of your pain. Does it help to get it out, Storm? Hope so.
