Daddy Issues

She’s got undiagnosed father issues.
She rambles about it in her sleep,
connecting the dots to a loveless childhood.
She argues with herself,
telling herself her dad blew his last chance.
The strength of our relationship afforded her
access to sabotage my good intentions and blame me
for her insecurities.
If it’s him she sees in me;
it’s part of him
I see in her.
We bleed with empathy.
