I think if God was a woman, I would love her deeply.
all I’ve known are absent fathers,
all I’ve known are girls
who say they really love the one they have.
the concept of having a
child is fuzzy to me
maybe, because
knowing it takes two to raise is painful to me
to me father is a poem I don’t like writing
to me father is a voice on a phone every couple months
is a pain I never talk about
is a pain I try to laugh at

but all these issues
all this I am half empty issue
all this I can’t let no man love me issue
all this can we please not talk about men
issue

start with father
end with father
block me from going further

father, further
only difference is ur
all the pain you are
