Being Invisible Would Be Bliss

Daddy wants to touch and kiss,
Being invisible would be bliss
No more hiding behind locked doors
No more the screams of father’s whores
Run through the woods to cry in peace
Maybe then the beating would finally cease
	I could live forever, but for memories
	Being invisible would be bliss
Sob in silence, in pain I cry
Pray the lord will let me die
Cannot leave, cannot stray
I’ve been bad, he says I’ll pay
He watches me and haunts my dreams
Does daddy even here my screams?
	I could live forever, but for memories
	Being invisible would be bliss

Saw that boy at school today
I beg my fears please go away
Bite my lip, hold my tongue
Please let his guesses all prove wrong
I just hope he doesn’t see
The piece of daddy that hides in me
	I could die forever, but for reverie
	Being invisible, me, no one will miss
He cannot see me, he wouldn’t care
Hated again I could not bear
Trapped myself away from him
All in all dad, he still wins
To not love the boy I’ve spied
My poor heart has finally died
	I could die forever, but for reverie
	But I am invisible, and he will never see

    Wow Misty. Courage indeed. When I posted my first poem I felt naked and exposed. But this...this is powerful. Congratulations on being featured this week. Much well deserved.

    Wow, wow, wow! Totally awesome thought provoking poem. I really hope that this was not a true experience for you; but if it was, just the fact that you lived with this and came out on the other side is awesome and I hope you've come to know that only God was able to get you through those horrible experience. On the other hand, if this is just pure poetry with no first-hand experience, this is brilliant! Either way, this is an excellent poem!

    Misty. I am 78 and had a very abusive father. I have never forgotten...the pain is still there after a lifetime. Fathers can kill your soul. I am sorry. Patricia

    Misty, this is a very picturesque poem and a very fearful one. So many of us do not realize how many are put through this torture and spend their lives invisable in their own eyes. I give you an A plus for this one. God Bless, Cile
