2020-8-20 -Angel Fish

i found my heart
by tending
fish,

bond began with
cyclic, careless
feeds,

just some shimmery
ornament in
need,

an occasional temperamental
glance and passing nod
when switching
lights off,

then the rains
came, and i rose from
graves, lashing at the mirror
ripping out my
veins,

and you just swam
around an underwater
world, oblivious
and gay,

it made me smile enough to
crack and re-thread
my veins,

now feeds are equal part
fish flakes and bit
shards of my
pain,

and you just swim
around your underwater
world, thankful
for today,

++++

now, some sharks
may deem it
dumb,

that i now talk to my
angel fish more
than i call my
mum.

…and either this is what they call growth or

i’m doing something very wrong.
