I tend to write poems when I’m feeling very intense emotions or have feelings that are hard to describe. This unfortunately means a lot of poems I write are very sullen and somber. When going through some others I’ve written with Mr H last nigh,t we did laugh at just how miserable I sound, but actually I probably am at the time.
I was extremely emotional when I wrote this poem, but things have moved on considerably since the event, into a much more positive space, but the I know the harshness of these feelings may very well come again.
The tears I cried today I know I will cry again.
For my son with all his beauty has been misheard once more.
The frightened child within has cast the shadow of a monster at the door.
Like the skin of a reptile, the form of the boy lies on the floor,
As those in the know circle, firm against the gore,
Promising to reform him with their hard line ways.
He remains ashamed, unsure, withdrawn, depleted by the haze.
And the tears I cried today will one day come again.
