My grandma’s jealousy
is seeping into my bloodstream
and I’m starting to understand
my grandfather’s frustration –
his temper.
Lately, I’ve got his sharp tongue
and tendency to blame the world
for my own imperfections.
I’m so sorry I blamed you
for the hollowness inside me,
and I apologize for hitting Decline
when you call –
I just don’t know how to verbalize
what I need to say,
how to show you how I’m feeling.
When I sit to write out a draft
of my speech,
I leave the page blank;
I could not describe it any better.
