Of Chimaeras And The Lorelei







You’ll look endlessly and forever,
to find that father
who abdicated his paternal duties;
the absence hollow
as a cancer on which you feed,
and destroy yourself: both
victim and perpetrator of the deed

Naturally, I am hidden behind
the net of negativity;
which stigma of attachment
creates sympathy,
from those who stooge for you:
the long line of lovers waiting,
keep the flesh and blood image alive
