Shame

     
the day haunted me      
& the night offered no shade      
       
the moon laughed      
while i run from demons      
the sun witnessed      
& turned away      
       
my pain to bare alone      
i harbor it      
travail as a woman in labor      
   
i give birth to it      
& name it      
i call him shame      
       
hide him from the world      
covet his nature      
& feed him my loneliness      
       
he grows        
in the empty places      
fills the void with his voice      
his song is melancholy        
& i weep for its beauty      
       
never to be heard      
humanity doesn't speak his language      
he speaks in riddles      
       
he questions      
       
"mother do you know me?"      
       
i answer      
       
"i bore you of wolves      
that ravaged      
my virgin soul      
tore into it      
& injected their torment"      
     
"in agony i birthed you      
raised you up      
to be a fine man      
i will rename you"      
       
"Truth"
