I don’t know why you keep mixing honey with vinegar
Everytime I taste your love
My lips bleed for days
& for years, I tried to fit in
It kept lighten me until I dive too far
I was so into you that it made me live out of me
You taught me well
To serve your wounds
Everything that was hurting you, inside
I tried to save you, Mama
But I was loosing me, myself and I in the process
Why aren’t you able to see the obviouness ?
Why can’t you stand that you could be wrong ?
Aren’t you made of human flesh ?
Aren’t you dying ?
Aren’t you loosing the child to whom you gave life ?
Are you a fool, Mama ?
Your tragedy make me sad
Forced to love you from a distance
Thickheaded to keep your vulnerabilty afar
Cause now, for both of us,
your intimacy is mortal
And we know, Mama, that you are too.
