But Not Anymore

Drink another and take your time
I’ll wait like I always do
So you admitted you were wrong
like that fixes everything
like I am supposed to be grateful
You left the boy behind
and scarred a man

You hurt us all deeply
I never really had a childhood
No, because your Father was worse
You made up for lost time
Where were you whenever I needed you
Where were you anyway?

I always needed you but not anymore

But I remember the sunlight on my face
you were once something to me
Before you ever hit me
Before you put me down
I was happy just for that day
I actually felt secure
All the dread would just fade
All the smiles would be eternal
But you took that away from me
You made sure I felt pathetic
I don’t care now
I guess I believed you

The End
