Daddy's Girl has Fallen Down

Ah, such a beautiful,  bright yet dark,
hopeful, dreadful, impossible relationship
It had to end in tears.

On reflection,  that relationship was
probably just a minor chapter in her life,
serving to contrast with
the more familiar sequence of tragedies.

 A mother's love for her child
is frequently eulogised;
so how do we react
when a particular mother
is a violent psychopathic bully?

I still hold tremendous contempt
for the woman I never met
whose enduring influence
destroyed my relationship
with someone I loved.

 
I love you so much that it hurts.
You love encaged inside your shell.
I reach out but you're out of sight
- a pussy cat trapped down the well.
And so I called your name
but no reply came.

Daddy's girl has fallen down.
How hard she hits the floor.
The floor then hits her in revenge
and then hits her some more - and then once more.

Men brought you gifts: fear, guilt & pain.
For love instead you turn inside.
But is the seed that grows within
new life or death personified?
And still I called your name.
Your reply never came.

Daddy's girl has fallen down.
How hard she hits the floor.
The floor then hits her in revenge
and then hits her some more - and then once more - and then once more
- and then once more - and then once more - and then once more - and then once more

When did you last kiss my photograph?
You used to kiss it every day.
I travelled round the world to see you on your island.
You went to another island to get away.

And what shall I now tell the world
about a love which strained and groaned?
Intense yet fragile, leapt and faltered,
burning the moments that Time loaned.
And yes I feel the same
And then your reply came!

Daddy's girl, you've fallen down.
How hard you hit the floor!
The floor then hit you in revenge
and then hit you some more - and then once more
- and then once more - and then once more - and then once more.

It's not supposed to do that.
It's supposed to support you.
but it's the lowest of the low
Stop! Stop! Stop! Stop!

Come, princess, let me dry your tears.
I'll hold you and dispel all your fears.
We'll stay together through the years.
Just let my whispered bidding fill your ears:
Rise again!
