I mistook her for an angel
Before she dug her claws into the deepest confines
Of the abyss of this, my experience
Quietly regarded as someone else’s tragedy
Known only as a whisper in tiny circles
Of what once were fears now displayed as articles of scars
Content to play the role of mother she remained
Reflected in the love or, rather, hate that grew to consume me
Now I ask with time that passed
What reason have you chosen me to feed
And so kindly bleed upon the pages of this, my conviction
How did I end up amongst the ashes of what otherwise remains
A testimony of the evil we release in the conflict of hopes
Betrayal, I delve into the richness of remorse
And bask in the illumination of a memory, faded
For we have outgrown ourselves one too many times
To remain intact
And this lesson leads itself to further its cause
Leaving me undone, regretful, and alone
Open to the key ingredients of mass consumption
I insert the knife into the four corners of this decision
Dissecting all these layers of regret
I find myself left wondering
Searching for some excuse to exit this incarceration
Lead me to my demise
Allow these wounds to swallow me whole
But left with my plate to pilfer
She chose instead to starve
Sparing me the peace that I might otherwise have reached
Were it not for these memories that bind me
And confine me from words as yet unspoken
Deliver me the gift existing to defy the only side of ???
That ever graced the side of her tender tongue
As if passing on the pure would rectify her inner greed
I seek shelter in the crowded spaces of intentions to revive
This child is alive
As I fall to depths unknown
Rehearsing all of what I should have said and done
But didn’t
And now I fall
Repentant
