she sings to me
like the sad sparrow in
the cold,

dusking the day
with a draw of chords.

and i want her
to choke 

on the glissando
of her cordial chirps

and gasp like
she were a drowning

nestling,

because i

cannot breathe with her
so close to the window, i
so close to the

resurrection 

of the freedom
of mine she imprisoned.

i take hold the 
nape of her larynx, swollen
with weep and apology,

hoping to snip
her straight clean.

instead i fold over her
like a nest and rock
her to sleep.
you don't even know

Funny, how the people who simultaneously drive us crazy are also the ones we feel the most sorry for. Rather than lashing out like we might want to, we fold them up in our arms instead.

Maybe I'm misinterpreting. I don't know.

I know I love all your words.

yes, exactly. though this was intended to go deeper than a normal parent-child relationship, because it was more broken and intricate than that. but yes, the general idea. i will love her no matter what.

wah, i love to hear that <3

This is a seriously charged, very emotional poem. the line breaks are fantastic and work very well to keep up the intensity. I was really startled and impressed by this.

this is, tender, dark and understanding.
