daddy

daddy
my life with you is such a lie
i cannot call you dad
you cannot call me daughter
im glad youre over there
im glad im over here

my life with you
a binary mask
you see what you want to
i be what I don’t want to
i need to know you
i need to know me

i hate you know me I hate you
i love you understand me I love you
its not my fault its not my fault
my keyboard your shield
my black and white life
turns to red and grey

come back daddy I love you so
you loved me once
too
love me anew
its me daddy its me
will I ever see you again
will my words bury you
where you stand

im sorry daddy
i lied to you
protecting you saving you
prolonging you
just until
you come back
then I can destroy you
and no longer
lie to you
