Topic: FamilyPoems


Iím killing your name.
every last syllable of it.
extinguishing that label of lineage
bequeathed by inheritance.

gone the formality, the sobriquet,
the cognomen, the moniker,
the first and last, the future and the past.

if I could, I would scour your genes
from the flesh;
flush that toxic legacy from my veins.
splice in less angry, more patient.
whitewash the selfish and paint beautiful;
remove those dead eyes and dark thoughts.

but until that is possible, Iíll be content
with killing your attribution, my shame,
and consigning it to the grave
of forgotten names.

Remind me not to tick you off...imagine what you do to people NOT of the same blood...unless this person is an ex, making you a female.

Poetry is much like a great photo, a single "moment in time" capturing many feelings and emotions. Yet, they are very alive; creating stirrings within the readers who form visual "pictures" of the expressed emotions within the Poem. ©
