He was long gone from the room, yet in her deep fear Lucy could still hear him.
His liquid diet fueled anger was screaming at her mom now, her frail voice begging him to stop while he smashed another glass against the kitchen floor. Though Lucy knew that not even calling the police helped, as last time when she called them her mom lied that nothing happened while covering her bruised wrists, just because she still loved him.
He was not her father. No more lullabies in her soul as she prayed God to simply take him away one day.

  1. Daddy…

    Why are you shouting so loud daddy?

    Mommy’s not deaf, she can hear you, daddy.

    Why do you yell at her so, daddy?

    Why don’t you stop, and maybe rest awhile daddy?

    She didn’t mean what she said daddy.

    I’m sure she never wanted to hurt you daddy.

    I KNOW she didn’t mean it, daddy, I just do.

    I’m sure she still loves you best daddy.

    I’m sure she’s only friends with him, daddy.

    I’m sure she will want you back daddy, one day daddy.

    Where are you going daddy?

    Can I come too, daddy?

    Can I daddy?

    Daddy?

  2. Wrap my arms around you, your tears flowing over my shoulder. Say nothing. No excuse no explanation only your tears washing away all this grief collectet by this little girl, her father, her mother, the father of her father… in an endless row.
    Maybe it will end when all this tears has a place and no need to hide.
    God bless you Ela!
