Cut it out.
sharp knife
lonely bathroom
slip the blade
beneath the surface
and remove the cancer.

This blood is tainted
flowing so freely
upon a cold, dirty floor
his anger, his hatred
his rage, his ignorance
his misery
mixed within me.

I try to remove it but
dull blade or sharp
knives can't change the past
and they've never
changed my future.

Still I try
cut it away
remove the source
tie off the remains
and maybe
one day
I'll be a good person.

father or no father
I'll be a better person.

pain is real, you can touch it, you feel, your alive, your strong. It may seem like you are not, but the fact that you can share what runs deep is a power not everyone has. One day you will turn this power over and the creative vision will be even better. Loved it. Thank you, April. Karen

A blade doesn't need to be sharp to cut, April. And it doesn't need to be metal either. With every word you utter, he is that much farther away and you are that much better of a person.
