    Daddy, I love you. I may not be able to show

    you sometimes, but I do. After every phone call I whisper I love you too because I know you don't always have the time for me to tell you. Whenever I stay round and run out of things to say, it's not because I'm bored. It's because I want to make everything that we talk about...

    Honestly, you've never been much of a father,

    so I'm not going to call you dad. I don't know, I just thought that dads were supposed to actually care. I remember talking to you after I stopped cutting, and you acted like you didn't know I cut, you said that cutting was what people did when they wanted attention. Thanks for...
