Mama

he says love

over and over

out loud

like a mantra

but he says it to me

instead of god.

he thinks i’m a goddess

he treats me

as if we are tied with

an umbilical chord.

Mama

i’ve been in the fetal position

most of my life.

i found someone

who will hunch over

and stretch me out.

I’ve never felt the sun

like this before.

Mama

I’ve only had glimpses of light

in my past life.

this is my new life

this is my future

and I see finally

what you were talking about

when you said out loud

the word Love

over and over.
