Into the Land of Futility

Into the Land of Futility
By Shurooq Amin
***************


Gothic women

Embracing the sky

“Come with me

And i will take you

Into the Land of Futility”



Light calls to me

From whence my father resides,

An extra burden on the angles.

Warm chills flutter

On wings of crystal.

Darkness beguiles me

From whence Lucifer towers

Lord of a child’s nightmare

Up till the age when she cries

“daddy, daddy”

And finds no one there

But the faces

Of mother, brother

And the embryo of a sister.



Unborn as yet.



Catalytic presumptions.

Daddy has gone.

Sister has come.

Irreplaceable replacement.

God’s gift to you, mother.
