Daddy, Please Don't

Look into my eyes
See who I am
Let your eyes feast
On my black and blue skin

Nothing is wrong
The bruises aren't anything
I guess I hurt myself
I'm fine. See?

Daddy, please don't
Don't be angry
Don't clench up your fists
Don't strike me down

Daddy, I love you
I'm sorry you're hurt
I'm sorry no one understands
Daddy, you're hurting me

Daddy, please don't!
Put away the knife
I quit cutting
Don't make me begin again

Mommy, I'm asleep
I'll never wake up
I'm sorry I've died
I didn't want to

Mommy, I love you
Daddy does to
Even if I did get murdered
By his hands

Daddy, if only you didn't
