That Man

That Man

A Poem by Emilia Cole

He,Him.Father,Man

Known but distant 

Alive but dead

Lost but existent

I know him 

He came every second weekend

What a joke

He want's me to say he's perfect

He isn't but he's the only one I have

Right?

I'm not very religious

So I don't have the wonder of 'GOD'

But I have my insanity

My depression

My hate

My unwanted self

In place of a existent, very real man the one whose not there when I need him the most 

When I ran away from it all to go to the devil only to find i wasn't wanted there  

Only for me to go to the demons of waking hours 

Damn That Man 

Damn him to the devil that would not take my pain to keep

Hell I must sound insane

Talking like this but then again I did mention I was 

Didn't I?

my oh my Emilia. You my dear are a blooming writer. At such a young age, I feel like you're going to be absolutely incredible. (You already are) This is full of emotion and power. Sad to hear about how nuts your dad is. If you like books I recommend reading "After you" by Jojo Moyes. You remind me of Lily. xx Well done!

Well, this man has missed out on a great little seed that has sprouted and blossomed into a beautiful rose im sure. Theres things that happen in life no one can explain, but why llok for a solution or an answer to something that can just be stepped over? You got this, continue, hit next and you will see the days shine brighter.

Now this... I love this. It captures emotion. It captures true, heartfelt emotion. This comes from a place I understand. Very well done.

these words are loaded with emotion and meaning, the representation of his presence in the 2nd-4th lines brings to heart his character and the voice of the narrator, the stagnated structure works to show a rush of emotion throughout
