    You'll never see this

    but I still have to say it. It hurts not being able to be with you in the hospital and through all of this, and I know although we never say directly that we love each other but we really do. You will always be my favorite man. Please don't leave yet, i'm not ready...

    Sometimes I really want to call you

    and tell you how damaged I am. How it still hurts when you say that you didn't want to have a girl, especially someone like me. I know you think I am stupid, weak, unworthy and don't really see me as a daughter. After all, you only remember me when you want to show something to...

    Bittersweet

    My father is/was a mixed bag. Far from perfect, he beat both my brother and I, and he taught us to fight back physically when people hurt or teased us. His discipline was wildly inconsistent, sometimes hugs and understanding when a beating wouldn't have been unexpected...

    It would be nice if you were around to have seen me smile. Met my circle of friends now. Watched me grow out of asking you if I could eat a lollipop. Seen me drive a Jeep. Seen me use a filbert paintbrush on an oil painting.  Seen me play the trombone. Seen me learn how...

    My dad stabbed me, my brother

    and my babysitter when I was 5. My brother was 11 and my babysitter was 16. This was after my mom divorced my dad. I guess he was angry that my mom got full custody of us. He was a drug addict so the court said we would live with my mom and my dad could see us every week. I don...

    what happened to me, but the truth is, the memories will always be there. I wont ever be able to get the innocence back that he took away from me, the innocence you pretended was still there even after what happened to me.

    I would tell him that he was an awful father.

    He was a controlling and sometimes violent person who did not care anything about my feelings, my opinions, my wishes. He made me feel unloved and at times very scared. He treated me badly and I never felt secure growing up. I blame him for searching for love in all the wrong...
