The prayer between you and your mother

Between you and your mother,
There’s a prayer keeping you together,
On how to not fall apart in front of each other.
You both reek of men who do not know how to stay,
Or how to love you ,
Or how to not leave with a piece of you.
They remind you of your father:
The genesis of your desperation for any man’s love,
A man who will love you and stay,
A man who will love you and be present,
A man who will love you and not exist in two places at the same time.
