A Poem For the Fatherless

December 15 2005

this started out as a longer poem but didn't quite make it that far...

17 years    
17 years I waited
For his kind words to touch my face
17 years wasted
Vanished, without a trace.

Why I let myself start to trust him
I still don't understand
17 years on a guessing whim
17 years, I "chat" cannot mend.

Calls are pointless
He tried and he did fail
My heart needs a seemstress
Effort now is as pointless as the mail.

17 years flew by so fast
But the images of hatred still do last.
