Miss December

This is kind of a story/poem, so it's kinda long..

Miss December
The month I'll always remember.
You've shown me pain and sorrow
Since the day I was born.

Baby's first Christmas
Almost became my last.
It didn't have to be that way
But daddy drank more than a flask.

Time passed but not too fast
And I was three.
My innocence was taken away
At much too early of an age.

Fast forward two years
I wish that day wasn't so clear.
My brother was just playing behind daddy's truck
But the tires were rolling back.

I screamed to stop
But it was already too late.
The once pure white snow
Slowly leaked a bright red.

Just one year passed
The day that haunts me most.
I cried and pleaded for the man to stop
But I was told we had to finish the game.

I was told if I really loved my daddy
I'd let him put himself inside of me.
I choked on the tears in my throat
And I begged God to make him stop.

Two more years went by
I found a way to cope.
I took the sharp kitchen knife
And slid it across my skin.

Blood started to show
And I fell in love.
It made me feel well again
To watch the liquid flow.

Three short years surpassed
But never long did they last.
All the boys and girls made fun of me
I was just a bit overweight.

I took my fingers and shoved them down my throat
Until today's meal came up again.
It was supposed to be a once in awhile thing
But now Ana and Mia are the best of friends.

One more year arose
And I swore it would be my last.
I took every pill I could find
I was going to be in peace forever.

But I was found
By the only boy who understood me.
We cried together for awhile
And he made me promise to never leave him again.

We made a promise we swore we'd keep
We'll stay alive no matter what's in our way.
But little did I know
That boy would give up on his life.

Another year went by fast
And a damn hard one it was at that.
A girl my age shouldn't have needed rehab
But I did quite bad.

Needles were my new escape
To make the pain go away.
A terrible habit it was
But I couldn't say no.

Next year all I did was cry
And prayed to God to make everything alright.
The woman I loved more than anyone in the world
Was taken away on the Lord's birthday.

She was elder
But it wasn't old age that made her pass away.
The doctor wasn't so skilled
He was the one to take her life.

Two more years came around
And I waited for my next tragedy.
But I met a boy
Who made all my worries go away.

And Miss December
She didn't seem so bad anymore.
For once she let me be happy
Gave me something better to remember.

I loved that boy with all my heart
He always left a smile on my face.
But another year passed
That relationship didn't last.

Who knew what that boy could do
Who knew he could cause all these tears.
The same boy who repaired my heart
Was the same boy who ripped it all apart.

But Miss December
I should've known.
That you'd never let me be that happy
You are my month of misery...
