HER MOTHER’S WORDS

By  |

This eager to be somebody’s girl
has made this face once smooth as lard now rough as sand
and each night, his steel, stretched and stiff pounds away at her silk, rigid and dry
She silently found her hope in her mother’s words
“No matter how long the night is,
it will always loose to the morning
for darkness does not last forever”

This eager to be somebody’s girl has made
this heart once warm as pie now cold as ice
and each night, his voice, strong and vile yaps away at her drums near deaf and beat
She silently found her hope in her mother’s words
“No matter how long the night is,
it will always loose to the morning
for darkness does not last forever”

This eager to be somebody’s girl has made
this dream once filled with life now dead as grave
And each night, his punch swift and sure jabs away at her frame, raw and sore
She silently found her hope in her mother’s words
“No matter how long the night is,
it will always loose to the morning
for darkness does not last forever”

This eager to be somebody’s girl has made
This lady once young and buoyant, now old and brittle
And this night, his darkness thick and black shadowed her mind livid and muddled
She found no hope in her mother’s words
Yes! her night was long, so long……..
No! it didn’t lose to the morning,

….for her body and will, gave up the ghost

    Yup
    There won’t be hope in anybody’s word if the head has been cut off already.
    Another wonderful creation.
    Nice writings
