a poem for daddy from braddley

by Bradd Howard

"tell me something exciting. I have 20 more minutes to kill."
"Well I (bleep) when I (expletive deleted)"
"Well that would do it"
You've disappeared again...
just your screen name taking up space.
Where do you go while you are away?
a tear drop on a computer screen
a morose keyboard.
Where do you go while you are away?
to the arms of girls who don't deserve you?
daddy come back.
let's bask in our mutual love of poetry.
that is something that will never sour.


Author's Note: well daddy... here it is... not sure if I like it... might take it down after 24 hours but wanted to prove to you that I was working on something...

bradd, i like it. here's what i want to see; i want to see what daddy said inside those bleeps. i want a little more of that. more of the conversations, the give and take. that's the really interesting stuff.

i love this, exactly as it is. as one who waits to hear from a loved one while staring at a quiet im window, i can soooo relate!
