Unwelcome Daughter/Nightmares

Unwelcome nightmares

Assault rare peace of sleep

Past dragged up from 

Black Lagoon, adding

New details which claw

Gnaw frail fabric of ageing

Soul till shredded hem

Is all that remains to

Grasp in trembling

Fingers… scrap to wrap

Around naked bleeding

Heart, remnant of Self’s

Scattered puzzle pieces…

Too often it’s her face

Floating amid the chaotic

Scenes, her violent voice

Harsher silence torturing

Me for reason mysterious

Never to be solved…

That I am despised is all

I’ll ever know… her first 

Child disgusting, shunned

Displeasing, unwanted

Forever unwelcome
