While Caitlin had gone to my father’s grave
to pay respects to a dead man,
Mother & I had gone to Church
to pay respects to the dead
Son of God.
Even as David had kept secrets from my mother,
he had kept secrets from me,
yet there wasn’t one secret either of us kept from him.
Machines had kept my father’s body alive,
his soul hovering in Purgatory,
while Mother & David had enjoyed heaven
Mother was as Goddess,
for she had taken us to an empty grave,
only to resurrect my father from the dead
with a few words.
Had David allowed my father to die,
he could’ve loved my mother without sin.
he had risked his eternal life,
even, in her own way,
she had considered herself
above God’s law.
