Dreams – Intimacy

I was just thinking of you.

You were always this tall man in my memories. There would always be blinding light coming from behind you. In my eyes, you looked like a super fantastical being with powers to make the impossible happen.

Until I stopped believing that.

I don’t know how it started. I don’t really know why I did it. All I knew was that you were no longer a man I could look up to. In fact, I couldn’t look you in the eyes anymore. When you would come near, my skin would crawl. Don’t think that I hated you. That’s not true. I just didn’t want you around anymore. If it was possible, I would not want to see you around anymore.

You are my father.

And that should have been enough.
