Mother

A shark will never know land

Just as you will never know me

Lingering, incomplete conversations terminated by fear

Fear is what I feel in your presence

And what caresses and kisses me sweet dreams

Another expectation left unfulfilled floating evanescent above the shore

While the shark chomps gleefully on the helpless guppy

Searching desperately for a home

I wrote it about my mom who will never know me for as i truly am. I see how it is confusing but I threw it in for a new taste
