2020-08-30 – Martyr’s Plight

call it a dream,
the wish, a
cold tear,

if you wish it,
i’ll clear

if grief leaks
i’ll lick it.

call me a bad dream,
a slip-up, did mother’s
fears become

if you don’t fight me,
i’ll do my best to
spook them


but in truth, i’m pretty
pretty scared

and too spent
to help
