2020-08-30 – Martyr’s Plight

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

if you wish it,
i’ll clear
it,

if grief leaks
i’ll lick it.

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

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

++++

but in truth, i’m pretty
pretty scared
too
,

and too spent
to help
.
