Need to vent

When my heart feels heavy there's a book I read

Mom started it when I was in her tummy

Inside there's a note, how beautiful and smart I was and she loves me

It took the whole page.

Under the notes from "daddy" it's been blank for 19 years and counting

Do you even know what color my eyes are?

They're hazel like yours.

You weren't there for my birth, you didn't feel like coming

Do you even know my birthday without a Facebook reminder?

Do you know Haley's favorite color? 

Do you know Tyler's favorite TV show or his best friend's name?

I know you do.

I'm the only blood you have.

Why can't you love me too?

Why do you choose to stay away from me?

Mom told you I was getting married

I got married two months ago and you didn't even care

My heart ached looking at my right side and seeing I don't have a father

But when Haley gets married I'm sure youll hold her arm and cry

Why are they so special?

Why do you love them so much more?

Is it because I look like my mom?

Because I talk like her?

I'm the only kid you have yet I'm not yours at all.

Why can't you love me too?

I've spent every birthday wondering where you were and why you don't want me.

Do you hate me because of my mom?

Why can't you see me for me?

Can't you love more than just those two? 

Why can't you love me too?
