A Little Fishy

“you poured me in your cup  but i never measured up to what you wanted  from me or your dreams  for my future.  i can see– i can see  from the Light  behind my eyes that you never were a wise benign or humane creature.  your mind was brutal. your heart was insane.  you always took– always took more than you gave– breaking waves of hearts as you dug graves for a better Life and a better future.”
