    Why did you leave me like that.

    ., knowing we weren't on good terms? Did you have to go that time? Was "HE" calling you? The worst thing about that was i couldn't follow you there just yet. I'm sorry dad... I was angry at you for having an affair .. I guess you didn't love mom anymore.. You got tired raising...

    Thanks for proving to me

    that not only can a person live without a father, but learn how to block out what people say. it made me realize that you bullying me and abusing me have me scars and scars that prove I'm tough enough to handle anything.

    My dad and me were never in a good place.

    Since he knows nothing about me, this summer I decided to write down my lifestory, hoping that by the end he would've been crying. 10 pages of complete cruel honesty.

    I didn't deserve your anger

    or your cruelty. Now you want me to be there for you and make your life less lonely. I had forgiven you but then the abuse started all over again. I'm staying away for now!! We shall see what tomorrow brings.

    Dad, if I can still call you this,

    I loved the way you made me feel as a child when my eyes weren't big enough to see your layers. I measured your love by the things that you bought me, the parks that you took me, and the frequent trips to bakeries after school. And to me that was love, and it still is; but when...
