April’s PAD — Day Sixteen

April 16, 2014

Prompt: write an elegy


An Elegy for a Daughter

Spring had barely blossomed
when Death claimed you —
But you’d been dead my whole life
Those blue pools rarely rested
upon my face — unfocused
clouded by the distant past

You extended your arms
to that drunken Nazi bastard
anything to prove you were his
(even as you claimed you didn’t care)
But my arms were limp tentacles
wrapped around your thick neck

You pushed me away
as if I were a leaper
I was not the mirrored princess
nor the long-awaited son
I came into this world starved

You could have fed me
enveloped me into those arms
and pressed me against your heart
But it was robbed of its beat
as was I

O how I wanted to love you
I did, I did!
The only lesson that sunk in:
keep barbs around your heart
and never let anyone in

You won, momma
Congratulations! I too am dead
