“Daddy Issues”

You think a girl
with a broken heart
will be easier to “love”
because if the cracks
can be used to let
the light in, then you
should be able to slip
out undetected.
You think, if it was her
Father who did the breaking,
then maybe you won’t even
have to try.
But the girls who grew up
with gaps that wide learned
to use them like steel traps.
Sharpened knives in the night
waiting for a man,
any man,
who might try to make her
believe.
So when you kiss a girl
with a broken heart,
who was broken too young
by the one
who was supposed to break you,
remember her aim is true
and she won’t hesitate
to shoot.
