Getting Better?

Published: November 2011

The alcohol. The fighting. It was hard to take seeing them like this.
The late nights. The tears. Me waiting for all of this to end.
I didn't want to hear it, but I knew it was coming.
When it only got worse I knew I couldn't keep running.
Then the day came when they both sat us down.
They said 'I'm so sorry but we're over now.'
I cried and ran to my room through my tears it was hard for
me to see.
The hurt in my heart made it hard for me to breath.
The next day dad left. He cried when he hugged me and said 'See you soon. I will call you later, and I will always love you.'
I took it the hardest. I was full of sadness and hate.
I tried to forget I didn't need the pain.
Mom treats me different now. I look just like him.
I ignore them and close myself off. I don't let anyone in.
No one knows my pain. I don't let them. I'm just glad we can still see him.
People ask 'When will you open up and tell me how you feel?' I tell them never.
Cause' acting like it never happened helps it get better?

I come from the same story as you but my dad is an alcoholic who I have not seen since February. I wish I could help you some and tell you it gets better but I truely don't know. I have a friend from a bad background and she swears it gets better so I go by her words and make it through one more day. I don't talk about it much easier but I find it helps to have one person to talk to. You will know who it is when you need to talk. I find not telling the whole world helps me. I don't need the whole world to either feel sorry for me or look down on me. I wish you the best. And know that no matter what always go one more day.
