Mommy never plays with me.

Daddy spends his time outside with a bottle of fizzy, smelly liquid or coming back home with strange women and making loud sounds in his room with them.

I Know where Mommy is. She is in her room.....as always. She just lays in her bed, asleep. Her skin is always cold, and she never, ever wakes up, even when i shake her and ask, "Mommy?"

Why doesn't Mommy wake up? Why doesn't Mommy play with me?

I remember the first and last time she ever played with me. It was fun! Mommy called it "Tag". Mommy had to go soon, though. Daddy came.

Daddy and Mommy played Tag, but Daddy was chasing her and Tagging her with a knife instead of using hands. I told him that he broke the rules, but he didn't listen to me. He made Mommy stay in her room and bed. When he won the game, Daddy went back to his room, leaving a red knife instead of a gray one.

One day, one of Daddy's strange women came. She wanted to play Tag with me! I was so happy- someone had come, at last!

We played tag for a long time. Many laughing moments passed....then Daddy came again.

This time, however, I didn't want the woman or Daddy to leave. I decided to play the Tag that Daddy was playing yesterday- with the knife. It looked very fun- so i picked up the knife and Tagged both of them over and over again. They must have been tired of outrunning me- they were both lying on the ground, eyes open, still. I didn't know why their chests were not moving. In fact, I believe that they were so tired that their sweat turned red. I sat next to both of them, and shook them.

I giggled, and said, "Daddy, Daddy! That was fun! Lets play again! Pleeease, daddy....."

They did not move. They were just like Mommy, and I got sad and angry.

Who is going to play Tag with me next?
