I Still Stand

Midnight Dreams  -Coffin Break

I Still Stand
by Michael Romani

We are no longer family
I know this brutally
And with finality
You are my bitter enemy

There is no closure
To us being over
You keep sticking the knife in
Until I bleed again and again

Bleeding out without doubt
All over those I love; I want to shout!
But, I don't; silently I suffocate
In these sadistic games you resonate

There is something far verse
It is so very cruel and perverse
All the damage that you inflict on our daughters
For being guilty of me being their father

Passive aggressive in your thirty emails in a day
Those and your countless harassing texts
Do you ever go  - do you ever go away?
And when you do... please stay!?!

You think you've left me broken
With your beatings and cruel words spoken
But, as long as I still can stand
I will fight for our girls as planned

   ... and I still stand...
                 ... I still stand
