Tough Love

Empty promises is all she sees

My parents are compulsive liars
It’s as if they don’t even acknowledge me

Gambling problem
And unpaid bills
Empty liquor bottles give them the thrill

Heartbroken daughter who’ll never receive the love
From a supportive parent
Who’s company is overdue
And transparent

But why mother, why?
Do you always make me cry
But why father, why?
Do never say goodbye

Don’t you see the way she sits alone and die
Making a wish upon the emptiness of the sky

Hoping
Waiting
Longing
For the parental lullaby
