Daddy's Girls

Women born daughters
Of extraordinary men
Bear a gift and a curse.
The gift is quite evident;
The curse - not so much.

So few men can hope
To match the depths
Or complexity,
Even fewer
Have a like sincerity.

So again and again
The promise falls short:
And that vague
The not-quite-enough...
Is poison
To almost
Any love.
