I kept the ultrasound of the baby I never met.
A loaded gun
For father's head
She cuddled him at birth,
He caressed her at death.
A child’s heart
The little girl noticed he had no food,
She almost survived.
But almost is never enough.
Goodbye's made me see who you were to me.
Last Time I Saw Dad Alive
Knowing it was the last time
My parents protected their reputations instead of punishing my rapist.
Random Acts of Kindness
She sobbed on the curb until a stranger brought flowers.
Planning to propose to her today, death claimed him yesterday.
