Send Me Home To Papa

.
with a secret, shamed and scorned?
Force me to share the reasons
that I am so forlorn?
.
Ahead of time I used to have,
to grow into our choice –
send me home to Papa, but
please cut out my voice!
.
I don’t want to tell him of
how I’ve failed my mother.
How we’ve been so blinded and
how we’ve bruised each other.
.
How we couldn’t deal with
normal adult fare –
How we broke under the strain
of normal wear and tear.
.
How we lost the plot for what
we could not control.
How we blamed each other when
we need not blame at all.
.
How we drank that poison
and yet conceived a child?
Don’t send me home to Papa
when we’re not reconciled.
