You did it first


It pains me
indeed that you have lost me.

i never lost you
you are here inside my
indiscretions

it pains me much
that you did it first

you cut the umbilical cord
and i am the baby
floating in my own blood
grasping for breath

but still very much alive
with only hope as food
for my darkest night.

poet Emily Jane Brontë

I am the only being whose doom
No tongue would ask no eye would mourn
I never caused a thought of gloom
A smile of joy since I was born

In secret pleasure - secret tears
