Ascent!

Poetry: Ascent!

Ascent!

I have climbed

to the very

top

and nothing

will stop

me from

going

higher!

I reach for you

we both

should

be here

but you

have gone

to Hell as I

commanded.

I am Moses

and don’t

give a damn!

Filthy tricks!

You have never

given me

what I need!

So,

still playing tricks,

but

I’m here, now,

see?

And I will never

leave you

alone.

    1. Thank you. It was written two years after the homicide of my Mother. My relationship with my Mother was already dark and conflicted. ‘Ascent’ was one of my first real poems and an experiment with symbolism and collage.
