    Dear Dad,

    I cannot believe you. You said you would stop drinking.
    But you didn’t, and you aren’t ever going to, are you?
    Do you know how hard it is for me
    To watch you kill my mother slowly with your
    Bad habits and ignorance?
    Do you know how hard it is for me
    To shut myself down
    And pretend like I don’t care?
    Do you know how hard it is for me
    To see you act kindly to everyone
    Except the people who take care of you?
    Do you know how hard it is for me
    To lie through my teeth when I reply
    After you say I love you?
    I have no feelings left for you
    Except for disappointment.
    It will never get better, will it?

    -Emily.
