as I was fixing my makeup
in the eyes of the boy
it occured to me
that my father had been messiah
and I never managed
to take that weight off his shoulders

by Dew Of Blood

A few months ago, I was struggling to write a poem about my father, but the emotion I was trying to get across was elusive and hard to grasp, and the meaning got lost in the translation. I think you have pegged what I was trying to get at. This is short but profound, almost shocking in its simplicity. I am looking forward to more from you - thanks for posting.

Damn good poem. Perfect length, everything it needs is there. Mmmm. You're on my favourites list now.

sparing simplicity that says a great deal and packs a profound emotional punch. Enjoyed this.
