Daughter to Father

They threatened to rape me
I wish you were there
They wanted to kill me
Why weren't you there

I needed protection
I tried to ignore
I needed your affection
They pushed me to the floor

I cut so deep
So many pills I took
I still weep
At my wrist don't look

All of this I hide
Where are you now
The blood hasn't dried
I cut just now

I need you 
Where is my father
Days left I have few
This is your daughter

    This is a sad one. it makes me wonder if it is addressing the physical father or the spiritual one in heaven. I hope it's just fiction!
