Layers

Under all these layers,I am naked

The woman you try to kill

With your stolen

Assuaged inheritance of power

Was dead long before

Curtains curled back

Exposed shower kissed skin

Quivering of memories 

Bubbling up 

Like fists to the dog

Crippled over in loyal age

And windows smashing

“Happy Mother’s Day”

As the baby cried
What I would give

To die all over again

To never lose the last shred of my life

To you.
