Child's Play

""Your Judas Like Tan""

You keep going down like rain,
A wishing star in disguise, 
You cry bloody murder, I hide in disgrace
Your lips forever stain, 
Your manipulation's deeper than any domain in space 

Darling, however, that will never cut what bleeds from a mother's heart
My precious darling, your feathers are in mourning like a flightless dove
Is this to be love, standing there, while I fall apart
Our younger years, display nothing but love,
Like the wonder years, you will remain more precious than a stone 
On the contrary, I was expecting a little more
From one betrayal, right after another, a heart colder than winters zone
That never counts as a fault, when it comes to unconditional love
Darling, this pain was never yours to absorb alone 

Let me hold you once more!

My beautiful darlings, the nights grow random like sin 
Your mind's fast at switching grapes on a vine 
Fault, from a mother to son, too much exposure from the sun
Insanity and sin remain, from a mother to daughter 
Soaking in salt, that protects me from your loaded gun
A shameful way, to sunbathe your skin like a shooting star
My beautiful daughter, you put my heart behind bars

My dearest cry baby, you're all grown up, these days
Sweetheart, I don't see you running home no more,
These towels will not dry, 
The feeling of fresh pepper, floats from the center of my core

Your man made drama, spread out every window and doorway
Leaving the light to reach the floor
-- Once again the sun, has revealed your Judas like tan
Your tears have fallen, one too many times
Here we are, covering every bruise
Raising every brow, wishing everything gone
Darling, no one will love you, like I do
I still whisper your name, and wish life had nothing to lose

Sweet darling, your eyes are rolling like dice
A small roll of dominoes misleading everyone the wrong way
This time I can't cover your mistake with a blanket, 
My little darling, you have gone too far
Your paper dolls aren't cutting smiles from this frown
I've always known your the Iscariot, 
Selling your soul for a simple quarter
These tears, were never yours to sell, for at the end, 
Your sins, will have more weight than a thousand pounds of gold

My beautiful darling, I forgive you, every day, 
I want you to know, I'm Sorry about the things I had to say
What happened to the field of roses?

Darling, Mommy wants you to understand,
My voice, was for your own good, the knife is all rusted,
The father clock, continues to stand still
Sweet child, the allusion you left behind faded long ago
You are contradicting your life, with your infamous pretty face logo

My dearest cry baby!
Why the tan lotion, where's your sense of guilt?
Is this another game of child's play.

Darling, it's time to put them toys away,
In the name of Jesus I pray,

"My Sweet Darling, I need to hold you once more."

    It sounds like there is a lot going on and all I want to do is give you a big hug! It seems you have had to make choices as a mom that you never thought you'd have to make, I sure do hope that in the long run love is known to run deep in your blood and in your heart, hugs my friend

    Interesting work...It reads like a mother's anguish when a child gets grown and has really cut the cord and is on her own..We want to hold them but we also want to release them to be their own person..Thanks for the visits to my page..Sara
