lies

you said you loved her
that you would give your life if it meant saving hers
you promised to stay no matter what happened
and that you'd be with her when she was saddened
yet now that she needs you most you shamelessly fail her,

in bed while making love you asked not to use protection, because you 'loved' her
you promised not to subject her to rejection
in case your gonads and ova made a fusion
but when she told you that the pregnancy test kit turned blue
she suddenly became a whore, an unworthy lady for you
you dump her fast like she was dust on your shoe
and completely denied responsibility for the baby due

now that the child has grown into a star, a super-glowing star
who has you eyes and stature, a beard and nose-edge as sharp as yours
and without a doubt, the same DNA as you
while you were drinking yourself to death, he was growing up
under the care of the one you 'loved'
he became great, a son of your blood and that of your 'beloved'
but you have no rights to him, not two not one
to his success you have no right at all

as you rest gracelessly on your death bed
remember everything
every detail of occurrence
but most importantly
remember what you said!!!
