I want these marks to speak
To tell the tale of how I became
How I force this grin of joy
How my blatant flaws were their aim
A single digit
In the world of doubled
Adverse to the stray
Upbringing pure troubled

This is forever
Future forsaken
Purity never
Innocence taken
Is it so
The being of numeral
Charted statistic
Igualmente
It started with protection
Hide yourself
But you took everything
I won't let you take them too
HOCUS POCUS
THIS POEM HAS NO FOCUS
ABRACADABRA, RAZZMATAZZ
A SIMPLE LIFE IS BUT CULTURED JAZZ
MECCA LECCA HI, MECCA HINEY **
I AM CAST SPELL WITH NOWHERE TO GO
SIM SIM SALA BIM
WITHOUT MAGIC, MY CHANCES ARE SLIM
It's all colored lines
Point A seldom trot to Point B
A mind grounded in grey haze
Matching hearts held in loving daze
Let it paint where we all stroke
Show the color of us
As strong as oak

Rainbow black and grey
Chaplin days of telling tales
Hands held high in blank states
Grips tightened on shallow slates
Suffer slim paint of a tree
Be the master of the canvas
And the picture is incomplete without thee
You, me, we

What's defined, heart-to-heart as key
A solemn "her" without a desperate "me"
The fruitless beg to start over
The "me" that can't live without "her"
Two combined, defined by God as One
Defy the language, I'm not done

Rainbow as vibrant as night
Modern day do flaunt said show
Hands do clap for deafened crow
My love for her unbeknownst, who know
Grow birch from ground to sky
Left me simply asking why
On top of lumber she live life
Yet on dirt I define by knife

Answers are not want we want
But another chance
Start over
With me
Flamboyant cadence
"Me" and "Her" left to a simple, single dance
Dare do it be another eye
To look me down and ask me why
I suffocate such a simple solution
And end the night with a strong contusion
The burning of breath beneath the vein
Leave me asking what is sane
Make it numerical and ask him why
She was empirical and left him up high
Served cold and last
Picked only if desperate
Left out in trash
Considered fruitless for effort
The barren tree
Bottom of the barrel
Forgetful and forgotten
They are quick to move on
Scoop spirits for seconds
Table-less meals for full mouths
Set back home with no desire
Wait for chance that lid is lifted
Son
So, you're here.
Sooner than expected.

"Who are you? How did it happen?"
I am all
But for you,
The sharp point
The purpose ended
And nothing but empty after you slept
For the last time
"Where am I now?"
Where you brought yourself
You ended it there, you start over here
"Will it be the same?"
The legacy is short-lived
Accomplishments,
Failures,
They come with you
Leaving behind nothing but an impact
The same impact that brought you to me
"And you are?"
The one that cared through it all.

I knew of your end, but you never did.

I wanted you to grow on your own
To be yourself
To become perfect
"And yet..."
That part is over, you're with me now.

You came back
And I will set you out again
You're who I created
You will succeed in due time
"When do I succeed?"
When you're ready.
"So I made a mistake?"
I gave you one purpose when bringing you there.
I wanted you to learn.

"But was what I did wrong?"
I never saw you doing wrong
I saw you doing something different than last time
And it led you here
"Does everyone do come here?"
Everyone can be wrong
And I meet everyone
But I'm here for you now.
I asked you to come here, because I want you to learn
"Learn? Learn what?"
Who you are.

You are here for what you did
And that's not a bad thing
We all are born to make mistakes
And yours brought you here
But it doesn't mean that it's over
I have faith in you
I always have.
"Always?"
Of course. This isn't our first time meeting.
"What?"

You know good and bad, and I'm leaving you with what you have now
But you're special to me
You're why I exist
And I want you to live for both of us
To be the perfection I made you to be
Without you, I have no purpose
"Your purpose?"
You
Them
Us
I am here for all
But for now, it's only you
"Me?"
You're my only world.

I want you to try again
You know what to do now
You won't remember me
But I'll never forget you
"You're leaving?"
No, you are.

You have to try again, and I know you can do anything
I've always been proud of you
And falling back once won't stop me from picking you back up
"But I didn't fall?"
Everyone thinks that, but you're about to stand
As soon as we say goodbye, you'll stand taller than anyone I know
"I don't want to leave, though."
Don't worry, we'll meet again
But you won't remember me
"Why not?"
Because you will start over
And make a universe happy
That's more than I could ask from my only son
And if we meet again
We'll start over
Just as we did when I started writing.
