Abjure, My Son

Father, father

Where are you now?

I’ve forgotten you

You didn’t leave me, I’ll give you that

It was I who ran from our swollen light

The light shone through my morning veil,

And from your pedastal you had fallen

I left you there

In pieces

You had tried your best to stay with me

Or perphaps, I tried my best

To keep you alive

In my head

But my mind could no longer tell my eyes

To keep shut

To love an illusion I have created

And when you fell, and shattered there

My eyes closed

But my mind was empty

And I walked away

I write to you now without regret

I haven’t come looking for




To mend broken ties

I simply came to look back

To wonder if maybe

That lone, shallow morning

If I had picked you up where you had fallen

And put your pieces back together

And made you whole again

Would I be happy, then?
