I miss you

Daddy,

Where did you go?

On my first

Birthday

My gift from you was

A disappearing act.

I didn't know

That you were a

Magician,

Four years old,

You finally

Reappear.

You cram my brain

With Starry Wars

And Nightmares

Before Christmas.

You fill my belly with

Shell mac-n-cheese

And microwave soft pretzels.

And you inject my heart

With the hope

That this time you will

Stay.

I hate you

Daddy,

Gone again.

You've been practicing

Your magic

Tricks.

Not only can you

Vanish

But you can also

Brainwash

Little girls.

I cry myself to

Sleep

And wonder where it is you've gone

And why you left me

Here

And when you will

Reappear

This time.

I'm seventeen

And here you are

Again.

And when you let me down

I realize that you

Never knew

Magic.

You never were a

Magician.

You were just a

Man

That was

Lost

With a daughtter

That you couldn't

Keep

And a life that you

Hated.
