My Son

I feel constriction deep within
my chest
stained with toxic guilt
you left a child, torn from my wing
from my minds eye, I watched you
impoverished in pains shadows
voices chanted
clichés grating and raw
“he will return; all will work out”
rage experienced… distress realised
until in truth the voices did will
the return of the prodigal son
clothed in intelligence, beauty and pain
into my arms, not a child but a man

My Son
