bloodline

you brought me to life -
brought my heart blood,
my lungs oxygen,
my mind consciousness.

so naturally, everything i do,
i can do because of you
and i ask:
“what would i be without you?“

so you say:
“you are you, even without me
you’d be everything you are right now
and everything you will be in the future.“

that’s not true, i think
i owe you everything.

and every night
when i‘m asleep
you save my life

and in the morning,
when you softly wake me
you let the light shine in my room
but i yell at you
why?
i don’t know
i don’t really know.

is there rage in my bloodline
and did you bring me some?
or am i the one
failing to not get drunk on it, like on cheap vine?
