B.. Alexander

Proof - Poem by B.. Alexander

I was walking with my father
Through the junkie's habitat of the park
Past the band-stand to the lake
Where we stood and watched the birds
I longed to find some words to speak to him
He stood beside me like a statue
In some stony silent prayer
I racked my brain for something true
Some sort of spoken key
To unlock the parts in him he never shows
I just wanted to see some proof
That somewhere deep inside he loved me too
I needed to touch his scars
To finally believe that all of this is real...
