Daddy’s Little Girl

Oh how I remember being daddy’s little girl
All of those late nights dancing in the kitchen and you watching me twirl
Oh how I remember being daddy’s favorite daughter
But now it seams you left me with my head barely above water
Oh how I remember being daddy’s beautiful princess
But as i turned around you were gone in an instance
Oh I remember staying up all night for that call back
But there I sat for hours staring at the phone in the pitch black
Oh how I remember that car ride and you asked why I no longer loved you
And the truth is, it’s because you disappeared into the blue.
But that’s not what I told you of course
I sat there silent until you asked if it was because of the divorce
I subtly nodded and after that the car ride was silent
And I was afraid things were about to get violent
But instead you dropped me off with the family
And there I sat waiting for months anxiously
I asked my brother and he said you changed your number
And that night I sat there in my bed with not one minute of slumber
there I waited until you would send me that text
And here I am still waiting, but I’ve moved onto the next
But even if I find another man to watch me twirl,
I will forever be daddy’s little girl

Little Minds

Little Minds short poem

Look into their eyes. Eager, wanting to know. Wanting to know what they got themselves into. Fresh faces, years before the first wrinkle. Blank slates hanging on our every word. Each time, a clean slate pregnant with potential. Each time,
