Conversations with My Mother – 2: Se (If)

Simply put down your preconceptions of me: sit a while, and let us talk of the abstract, the obscure and ourselves.

Simply put your heart (and hands) on the table and I’ll try to do the same without trembling: and for this short time, attempt not to betray you or myself by hiding behind unspoken thoughts.

Let us meet in openness, discussion and conversation: exploring this new space we have never shared; and I promise not to beg you for understanding.

Give me this time that I may hold up life and say “Look, this is what I discovered”: and ask only that you do not disregard without thought.

Simply put, I wish for time with you.
That we may re-acquaint: forgetting the harsh words, hatred and fear that usually accompany our interactions.

Let us not fight, but look close at each other: identifying the differences and similarities that bind us.

And after this, I would ask one thing more: that you would – if you could bear it, hold me a while.

SO TELL ME: What do you think of this piece?

  • Did it engage you?
  • Does the meaning come across? Are there any images or lines you don’t understand or find unclear?
  • Are there obvious errors in spelling, punctuation or grammar?
  • Do you have any suggestions for revision?

Please be brutally honest in your assessments – good, bad or indifferent.
I don’t scare easily; and I really do want to hear what YOU have to say about my work.

Many thanks in advance for your time and your criticism.
