Root And Stem by Mortimer Nova
Only a fledgling follows it's mother.
Growing up feels the same. roots can wrap around and choke.
Smothering from where it's born.
Strangle out the open hole.
Spin around and kill them both. like an addicted father.
Beg for more. molest and beg for more.
Growing up. tortured coming, tortured going.
Lacerate them both until it feels alright.
Raise yourself with a knife.
Cut the ties that bind.
Cut away the stem.
Stab until it's gone.
