You left us
You closed the door
You blocked out the light
You weren't with us anymore

For so long it was just us three
Then mom grew ill
She let go of my my hand
Sickness won over will

We cried that night
There was sorrow and then some
The funeral was the next day
You didn't even come

We trained so hard
To once more see her face
You are not welcome here
You're a disgrace

Your intentions may have been pure
But you actions are riddled with guilt
You drove a knife through our family
Pushing down hard on the hilt

I guess I don't hate you
But my fury is real
And nothing can break
This heart of steel

You helped us though
You were all that we had
So once, just this once
I will call you dad
edward really does love his father

I JUST GOT OFF OF TUMBLR BECAUSE THE FANDOM FEELS I WAS EXPERIENCING WAS TOO MUCH.
AND NOW THIS!
WHY MUST THE INTERWEBS HURT ME THIS WAY?
IS THIS A SING FROM GOD, TELLING ME THAT I NEED TO STOP USING THE COMPUTER SO MUCH? 'CAUSE THAT'S WHAT IT SEEMS LIKE.
