Set Them Free

A lover can say lies

even if he does not speak.

A friend can be absent

even when they are there.

A mother can leave her child,

even when it’s unnatural.

All love needs to be set free; to come back in royal

tales of rejection—

scratched love on the surface

leaves rusted spots

hard to remove

with trust.

Fathers can never come back from affairs; have

more children and leave you grasping on hooks

nails in your blood

cuts on your raging heart

don’t give in to cosmic sin;

the grey paths

turn black from rot.
