My father's caresses.
Once I yearned for some sign of love but
now I only look at him as
I understand now, and I let go.
My mother's kisses.
I eagerly took them when
I was looking for love but
I took the dominance, too.
Now the kisses and the lack of caresses
leave me with a bitter taste.
I no longer want that kind of love.
I am my own
