Forever your parasite


I was floating in your womb,
warm amniotic fluid bathing me.
A dream, I dreamt with open eyes,
of this safety cocoon.
I dream it often, to coil back.
My umbilicus though devoid
and your placenta shriveled,
a phantasmal cord still attached.
The Wharton's jelly dried,
arteries and veins clamped.
I breathe to survive, yet
I hold on to the cord for life.
Like an unborn fetus,
forever your parasite.
Mother, my shining star
Your breath, keeps me alive.

poet Sir Thomas Wyatt

Farewell love and all thy laws forever;
Thy baited hooks shall tangle me no more.
Senec and Plato call me from thy lore
To perfect wealth, my wit for to endeavour.
