Sins of the Father

Somber is the saddest soul
Tattered like an old flag
Downtrodden with what I’m afflicted

I reach for you
And the searing pain of a love that splattered like hot oil
Burns away the doorway to our eternity or down you kicked it

The path you took by forsaking me
Seemed wondrous as the night sky
Shattered by bad choices

Disjointed jagged little diamonds
Fallen prey to your mar
The future echoes our children’s voices

  1. I like this, by which I mean the writing..not that the content is one to eat popcorn to whilst reading. The path taken by others may not lead to good things but the path taken by yourself can always end in immense wonders.
