    Mother unknown

    Post by Janet on Mon 26 Mar 2012, 12:01 am

    I stare today at this black canvas.
    Words slip through the crevices of my mind,
    and drip into the hollows of my heart.
    Reaching out to your unseen eyes.

    I stand before you today,
    naked and bruised
    Where you sit today,
    torn and weeping.

    I stand before you today,
    naked and crying
    Where you sit today, next to
    your cold, broken child.

    I kneel before you today,
    offering you everything,
    Unable to give
    You anything.

    I shall wonder dark nights with you
    Imagining what might have been,
    What is the purpose of this
    Surreal, nightmarish dream.

    Where we lie down tonight,
    Worlds apart, naked and crying.
    Know that I can hear the
    hollow echoes of your aching being.
