Day 0. a lot of tears.
There are lessons to be learned and consequences. It’s no big surprise it turned out this way. The spark in your eyes, the look in your face. I want you to contribute. It is not the same and that is a decision that I have made. I hope you’re cursed forever to sleep on a twin sized mattress. It should have felt good but I can hear the jaws theme song in the back of my brain. Make sure you kiss your knuckles before you punch me in the face. And this is for the lion living in the wiry broken down frame of your body. For the warning signs I completely ignored.
It’s no big surprise you turned out this way. When they closed their eyes and prayed you would change and they cut your hair and sent you away. You stopped by my house the night you escaped. With tears in my eyes I begged you to stay. You said “Hey man I love you, but no fucking way.”
scarred brown hands
cut my feathers and hold me
You wore two blue shirts.
words are Words are Stupid fucking words.
It’s a change of toothpaste and a realization of what you want.
