Sylvia Plath

You do not do, you do not do
Any more, black shoe
In which I have lived like a foot
For thirty years, poor and white,
Barely daring to breathe or Achoo.

Daddy, I have had to kill you.
You died before I had time―
Marble-heavy, a bag full of God,
Ghastly statue with one grey toe
Big as a Frisco seal

And a head in the freakish Atlantic
When it pours bean green over blue
In the waters of beautiful Nauset.
I used to pray to recover you.
Ach, du.

In the German tongue, in the Polish town
Scraped flat by the roller
Of wars, wars, wars.
But the name of the town is common.
My Polack friend

Says there are a dozen or two.
So I never could tell where you
Put your foot, your root,
I never could talk to you.
The tongue stuck in my jaw.

It stuck in a barb wire snare.
Ich, ich, ich, ich,
I could hardly speak.
I thought every German was you.
And the language obscene

An engine, an engine
Chuffing me off like a Jew.
A Jew to Dachau, Auschwitz, Belsen.
I began to talk like a Jew.
I think I may well be a Jew.

The snows of the Tyrol, the clear beer of Vienna
Are not very pure or true.
With my gypsy ancestress and my weird luck
And my Taroc pack and my Taroc pack
I may be a bit of a Jew.

I have always been scared of you,
With your Luftwaffe, your gobbledygoo.
And your neat mustache
And your Aryan eye, bright blue.
Panzer-man, panzer-man, O You―

Not God but a swastika
So black no sky could squeak through.
Every woman adores a Fascist,
The boot in the face, the brute
Brute heart of a brute like you.

You stand at the blackboard, daddy,
In the picture I have of you,
A cleft in your chin instead of your foot
But no less a devil for that, no not
And less the black man who

Bit my pretty red heart in two.
I was ten when they buried you.
At twenty I tried to die
And get back, back, back to you.
I thought even the bones would do.

But they pulled me out of the sack,
And they stuck me together with glue.
And then I knew what to do.
I made a model of you,
A man in black with a Meinkampf look

And a love of the rack and the screw.
And I said I do, I do.
So daddy, I’m finally through.
The black telephone’s off at the root,
The voices just can’t worm through.

If I’ve killed one man, I’ve killed two―
The vampire who said he was you
And drank my blood for a year,
Seven years, if you want to know.
Daddy, you can lie back now.

There’s a stake in your fat black heart
And the villagers never like you.
They are dancing and stamping on you.
They always knew it was you.
Daddy, daddy, you bastard, I’m through.”
Sylvia Plath, Ariel

Ricky Maye
“In all of your living, don't forget to live.”
Ricky Maye

John McGahern
“They'd listen silenty, with grave faces: but once they'd turn to each other they'd smile cruelly. He couldn't have it both ways. He'd put himself outside and outside they'd make him stay. Neither brutality nor complaining could force a way in.”
John McGahern, The Dark

Amit Kalantri

Amit Kalantri, Wealth of Words

Ring Lardner
“Are you lost, Daddy?" I asked tenderly. "Shut up," he explained.”
Ring Lardner, The Young Immigrunts

“Abba is not Hebrew, the language of liturgy, but Aramaic, the language of home and everyday life … We need to be wary of the suggestion … that the correct translation of Abba is ‘Daddy.’ Abba is the intimate word of a family circle where that obedient reverence was at the heart of the relationship, whereas Daddy is the familiar word of a family circle from which all thoughts of reverence and obedience have largely disappeared … The best English translation of Abba is simply ‘Dear Father.”
Thomas A. Smail, The Forgotten Father

Richard L.  Ratliff
“Fathers and daughters have a special bond.
She is always daddy's little girl.”
Richard L. Ratliff

Suzanne Wright
“She was going to go to her room,munch on chocolate,then collapse into bed.

And if her upstairs neighbors decided to talk about who the daddy was or cry again about how much David was loved,she'd go up there and give them somthing to really bloody cry about.”
Suzanne Wright, From Rags

Craig D. Lounsbrough
“The difference between a ‘man’ and a ‘father’ is that the former shares his genes, but latter gives his life.”
Craig D. Lounsbrough

Wendy Corsi Staub
“But if there was no baby ...
Then he wouldn't be a daddy.
And for aome reason, he desperatly wanted to be a daddy.”
Wendy Corsi Staub, A Thoroughly Modern Princess

“My prayers for these stressful days
Have become sharpened. Unadorned.
A single word to the bereaved and
Wailing Mother God - mercy.
Two words to
The infant child God, on trial in
an unjust system--
Tender love. And for the God who
is not a
White, robed, bearded father, but
a migrant laborer
Daddy, with a red baseball cap,
who only cries
When he thinks no one can see,
not a word, but
A silent squeeze of his calloused
hand to telegraph
Reconciliation, wholeness. There
was a time when
More words brought comfort, but
now my heart
Wants most to be true. Ready for
resistance by
Unapologetic clarity and fueled
by moving toward
A future in which we have made
all of us free.
-Holy Quiet”
Theresa I. Soto, Spilling the Light: Meditations on Hope and Resilience

Craig D. Lounsbrough
“A father teaches his children that the battle is not determined by the enemy that stands around them, but by the God Who stands within them. And that lesson can only be driven home as they watch their father stand around them, while God stands within their father.”
Craig D. Lounsbrough

Craig D. Lounsbrough
“The father who has selflessly poured himself into the life of his children may leave no other monument than that of his children. But as for a life well lived, no other monument is necessary.”
Craig D. Lounsbrough

“I spent the first twenty years of my life waiting for two men I was reasonably certain would never come back: my daddy and Jesus. At least with Jesus I knew he wasn’t gone because of something I did”
Brett Butler

Carly Marie
“I went to grab the perfect shade of green and realized I didn’t have it. How could bamboo be colored with primary green? I blew out a frustrated breath and looked back into the box.

Rand was crouched beside me, his hand resting gently on my back. His touch was light but also strong and reassuring. I couldn’t help but lean into him, even if I swore to myself I wasn’t. “What’s wrong?”

“This green isn’t right for the bamboo.” Because that was the most normal sentence I’d ever uttered.

“What about these colors?” he pulled out a pink crayon, then a blue, and finally a purple.

“Bamboo is green! But it isn’t primary green.”

To his credit, Rand didn’t look at me like I had four heads. But then again, he picked up the blue crayon and handed it to me. “I think blue and pink and purple bamboo would be perfect.”

My mouth hung open, and I tried to argue. “No! No, it’s not.”

Rand rubbed his hand over my head. “Kyle, it’s coloring in a children’s coloring book. You aren’t entering this into an art contest. It can be blue and purple and yellow and orange if you want it to be. It can be out of the lines, it can be scribbles on the page. You aren’t trying to imitate life right now. You’re coloring a picture that I can hang on the fridge and we can smile at.”

“The fridge?”

“I’m going to take the green away completely if you keep worrying about it.”

I gasped in horror. “You wouldn’t!” I needed the green.

Rand raised an eyebrow at me, asking me if I wanted to push it. I shut my mouth quickly and picked up the light-blue color he was holding out to me. Could bamboo really be light blue? I bit my lip as I put the blue to the paper and colored the first few lines in smooth up and down motions.

“It’s going to be beautiful,” Rand gushed. He was over exaggerating, but I felt myself swell with pride.”
Carly Marie, Untamed

“We all know a boy can't daddy until his daddy's dead.”
Maria Dahvana Headley, Beowulf: A New Translation

Craig D. Lounsbrough
“To lead solely on the behalf of those being led is the utter pinnacle of fatherhood, and it is sad that so few ever stand on the summit.”
Craig D. Lounsbrough

Q.B. Tyler
“These tits- I want to slide my cock between them and thrust over and over until your silky skin jerks me off and I come all over them. I’ll come so hard and so much that some gets on your face, coating your pouty lips and I’ll watch you lick it off. Lick my cum off your tits because every drop of it belongs in your body somehow. Your mouth, your pussy, your asshole. I want to drain my cock in every one of your holes.”
Q.B. Tyler

Cara Dee
“Titles were what we made them, whether it was age play or the lifestyle of DD/lb. With or without regression, with or without commitment. As long as it felt right, in one way or another.”
Cara Dee, Breathless

L.A. Fiore
“He's very sexy, your daddy. You might not see it being male and all but truly, he's enough to turn a straight man gay. I could look at him all day."

Loki's head lifted, his black eyes regarded me.

"I realize I'm objectifying your daddy, but when a man looks like him, he has to expect it."

Loki shifted; I reached over and rubbed his head. "You have no idea what I'm saying."

"Probably not."

And that didn't come from Loki. The head drop was instinctual; Rafe was behind me. It was like the man had a super power of always being present when I was at my silliest. Studying the flowerpot, I wondered if I could get my head in there too.”
L.A. Fiore, Beautifully Decadent

“Dad I just noticed the superman you are, instead of the superman i thought you were.”
Vineet Raj Kapoor


That man was a good man!”
Charmaine J Forde

“Daughters don’t want their daddies to be foxes, they want them to be lions. No Poseidons. Only Zeuses.”

Zidrou, The Adoption
