It doesn’t matter when
Or why my fractured heart
Would comment on then
Mother and daughter
Would never fight for him
Not for his well being
Even a pain he chose then
Its hard on me too
Is there anything I can do. I always ask
I Can’t tell if she’s frightened to
Come back or if she’s just through
At night I hear a yes from a demon
Regarding you it says yeah you son
With you she’s done. Checked off the list.
Devil smiles says I insist
But I regret this
And this and this and this and this
I said. I said. I said.
Please don’t do this
If there’s any insistence that I have
In this. I said. I begged. Please
Don’t do this. To yourself.
To your child to your attempted man
I know I fuck up but I’m always up doing the
Best that I can. Without a sense of hesitance Can’t you see I am. Here.
Right here. Trying to rub
Your whip lash out of
So much more than just out of
Have I wrapped
My arms hard around where
I shouldn’t have?
And cross bones. Poisonous path.
Soul whiplashed. I know you’re
mad. And I have had. A week in bed
Wondering if the demon of my nightmare is supreme and right indeed.
When will I see
The mist clear the streets
