Image for the poem Jake


you're the poetic part of me  
the pieces I can't reach  

stained glass pain  
so beautiful to behold  
each panel of our life  
tells a story  

an addicted mamma  
who set a path  
for your gentle soul  
to walk through the fire  

there was no other way for you  
I crossed into hell  
carried you with me  
only one way back  
& it was through the flames  

yet you don't hate me  
your spirit too bright  
for a world such as this  

a poet's soul  
much wiser than I
you make me see things  
that are hidden from me  
with your resilience

we aren't talking now  
I let you down again  
built your dad up  
just to have his disappointment  
crash down upon your head  

I miss you tonight  
hope you will pick up the pen  
before you ever follow  
in the shadow of my self demise  

*Picture of my son Jake*
