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"
