Haiku forest (Goodbye Dad)

by Johnny Crimson

Page me when you're close,
I cannot wait to meet you,
there's so much to say.
Apparently not,
said the apple to the tree,
you've thrown me away.
I never knew you.
I've hurt so many before.
Do you have any cash?
An apple of stone
falls far from the parent tree,
apparently so.
Calls from your doctor
in the emergency room
will go unanswered.
You are dead to me.
Father tree is falling down,
son digs deep today.
I remember when
you were like a god to me,
the fake messiah.
He won't last a year.
That's what mom had said to me.
You've stolen my life.
Once you had bet me
to walk down the hill of ice,
mom found me in blood.
I did what you asked
and never saw a red cent,
I love how you hate.


Author's Note: Dad, goodbye. Love, Seanie

Some of your best stuff.

Quite effective. I can sense and emathize with the anger, though for different reasons.

I'm stunned reading these. Each one hits hard for me, I can only imagine for you. Nicely done.
