Chaos, to which she gave her life
Dedicated to abandoned promises, re-heating left over dreams
Fixing broken men to stake claim over their pain,
an initiation to intimacy.
I saw tenderness
where there was control,
Love where neglect nurtured
itself into status quo.
Dad signed his letter of resignation from our lives
Mom notarized, signed as his savior.
Quietly sewed up a void until lies of normalcy
