Facing negatives in dank air.
Mustn’t be exposed to the light!
Capturing frames of siblings was dad's delight.
Father, father open that door.
We are your offshoots we deplore!
Let a flash of light ignite your life;
We need your exposure even more.
Father, father - invite the light within,
Without your guidance, we can't win.
Bother father, has his kin developed?
Please place those pictures securely enveloped.
Father, father, further do I implore!
Be that wedge on the edge of that door.
We take heed to your compulsion,
To let light in was your revulsion.
Father, father peer into a trying teen,
Once out grown may never know self - esteem.
Finally mother cast him out in fright,
Forgotten and forsaken - took flight out of sight.
Father never bothered to unhinge that room,
Where darkness dwelt - as one entombed.
Father, father in your dying bed,
I firmly believe - by a guiding light -
Were securely led.
... Now I'm with family,
Rather engaged with my paper-mate poetry,
Daunting relatives to haunt unheeding lives.
Pressed on to those eerie, sterile eyes.
