A poem from a females point of view, about a father who loved his daughter but more than he should have.

She loved him,
but she didnt understand love.
Only going by what she was told.
Never really grasping the fact,
that this was a mistake that would soon unfold.
When he held her she felt warm,
safe and out of the way of harm.
When he kissed her she shivered,
holding her tight with her head on his arm.
When they romanced she cried,
a pain beyond understanding.
She held on tight,
to force happiness in her mind.
As the force just kept on landing.
But when he touched her ,
all doubts were erased;
Amnesia from those painful nights.
He was cunning and manipulative,
a mere satan right there in sight.
Who would believe her,
if she told a soul;
about this secret affair that she held.
Not her mother,
a drug addict by circumstance,
many times she tried but it feld.
Bruises from when she tried to convince her,
telling her about the situation.
But all it did was fuel her hunger,
for heroin and her crack addiction.
Unitl hope was lost,
by the count of an overdose.
Leaving her now a motherless child.
And a father that loved her,
beyond belief.
Doing anything to make her smile.
Anything not a single acception,
she loved him with no disregard.
Despite the fact of their secret affair,
that would leave her emotionally scarred.
