It’s Mine (Originally Untitled) – Written Sunday 1st January 2006 (Aged 30)

It’s Mine

the relationship –
between me and my father
no matter what people say
lies with me only
only i know my truth
only i suffer,
only i was there
the relationship,
does not come with versions to share
the relationship,
between me and my father
is painted on my conscience
it does not go any further
it does not require comment
sniping from the trenches
comments from the sidelines
digs from the bench
i will deal with it in my own way
as i have always done
it is my love spilt,
when i was young
the relationship,
between me and my father
