#85 – Never Answered Questions – Janice Boyd

Did I cry too much?
Did I laugh too much?
Was my bottle not the bottle you wanted?
Was I not pretty enough?
Not precious enough?
If I had been a boy, would you still have left?

Other kids have “Daddy”
I just call you Jimmy
Why didn’t you love me?

When your car hit that semi
did you think you would have liked to have known me?
