Why did you have to pull me in like this?
Why couldn’t you be like every other girl?
Benign? Impermanent?

You were untraditional, unorthodox,
You became air where there was none,
Water where there was only dust

And then you told me that you were sick,
And nothing brings two people in like illness,
All of a sudden everything changed

I’ve never felt like much of a father figure,
But Goddamnit you made me care like one,
Probably why it’s still so agonizing

And I’m still tasked with laughable ideas
Like “letting go” and “moving on”
And I know that there’s no alternative

There is no room for me in your life,
You’ve set sail for new waters,
And I’m simply left to drown
