Eyes Wide Shut

by Neo Cleo Poeto

In retrospect of absence 
My return pairs undelivered 
Tailor-made ventures subside in contempt -
Your words, though cordial 
Laced with sardonic drizzle 
Punctuate the fabric of our reunion attempts -

The loom of virtuosity 
Veils our incompatibility 
And a patchwork of quilted pleasentries ensue -
We volley cordialities 
With no personality 
The thread of indifference stretches throughout you -

..What is a Father to do..

Try and try again 
But never give up
The template of love is at stake -
We reap what we sew
And this we must know
Holding on to raw edges we baste -
