Reminiscent

Wind rocks my boat tonight,
Sitting on this bed I feel little more than whole,
The nausea creating holes in my fickle heart.

Father walks cold in the streets of Paris,
Back turned to me,
I wander further upon this ragged terrain.

Distant memories fading yet again,
For in the presence of men and wind,
My skin becomes fatal.

The very blood,
Putrid,
And foul.

Hi Rich, thanks for the comment and your kind words.

The poem is a narrative about my father and how my poor image of him makes me feel bad about myself. As his blood runs through mine.
