A Family?

Tied together

By blood

By birth

By hatred

An assigned life to each

But a distinct soul

Differs from the rest

A family

Found within something she hated

Locked together

Not in detest

But in love

A drowned unheard voice

A wise sirens song

Tears fall from her eyes

Except the ones they stopped from coming

Red sores upon her flesh

Numbers upon her palm

In her bathroom she does lie

With memorabilia from both

A razor in one hand


A yearbook in the other

After all what's a family for

I really liked this poem. Actually I don't believe I have read a poem of yours I didn't like. You seem to be a very accomplished writer. If you have the time I would appreciate it if you would look at a few of my works and give me some advice.
