Poetry.

Auntie who never was,
if I should ever call you that.

A melancholy hail
to a bitter, old queen.

Family ties,
if only they'd unravel.

Kindly take back what you have lent,
for in truth, it was never spent.
For your love, though a distinct fake
will be the reason for your wake.

The flowers don't even smile anymore.
Your footprints tread what's rotten to the core.

Kindly take back what you have lent,
for in truth, it was never spent.
For your love, though a distinct fake
will be the reason for your wake.

Your ugly heart, once black, now drips of green,
and things now surface that were once unseen.

Kindly take back what you have lent,
for in truth, it was never spent.
For your love, though a distinct fake
will be the reason for your wake.

Family ties,
if only they'd unravel.

A melancholy hail
to a bitter, old queen.

Auntie who never was,
if I should ever call you that.
