why do you shun me so?
you overwhelm me with your tears.
you push me away with innumerable whispers.
you make me tremble
until i am all but lost of my senses.
Poisoned you make me when you are ill.
The hunters have come, yet have not gone;
they are too strong to merely hide.
It is we who have embittered our thirst.
Ingest all with a questioning.
Hear all with selective hesitation.
It is only when my brothers richly run away
That they became damned.
It is only when my sisters don’t give way
that they became mined.
Mother you are my Eden
that is why i strive to perfect you.
Do not forsake your mercy,
My own mother,
For we will only take what you cannot hide.
i dread tomorrow
with a keening so deep
that it wrenches my
bones right out of
for the slow-burning
poison to seep
what i have sown
to be slandered
as pathetic and cheap
ha ha, ha ha
with what you have
what do you even
expect to reap?
