Repressed

The psychologist said, you need to feel.
Dig deep into the soul
and find the pain that is hiding
that is keeping you awake
that turns normal conditions
into storms of terror

The psychologist said, ask yourself why he left.
Throw your excuses into the trash
and seize the information inside of you
take it by the neck and squeeze out the truth
take your answers and turn it
into something tangible

What about a baby makes you want to leave?
Did you stop being a father the moment you walked out?
I stayed a daughter.

A fragment of a human,
but still a daughter.
