Mother, Earth (Paradelle)

By ColorMeToxic

 

the psyche is a fragile thing, easy to break, fickle.
the psyche is a fragile thing, easy to break, fickle.
It only takes so much, it goes insane.
It only takes so much, it goes insane.
the insane psyche, it takes so much. easy goes it!
fragile, only to break, it is a fickle thing.

nothing like a mother's touch, to soothe the burn.
nothing like a mother's touch, to soothe the burn.
did the best she could, forgive her mistakes.
did the best she could, forgive her mistakes.
a mother's mistakes, the touch could burn.
she did nothing to soothe. forgive her like the best.

seasons change, the face grows older, as does the earth.
seasons change, the face grows older, as does the earth.
shows lines; experience, and hardships too.
shows lines; experience, and hardships too.
seasons hardships. does change face,
and the earth grows older too, as experience shows the lines.

the mother's insane. she did nothing. forgive the seasons. 
easy to break, so goes mistakes and hardships too. 
it does change her face. experience a fragile psyche, 
soothe the earth like only the best.
the touch is a fickle thing, it could burn. 
it takes as much. shows lines, grows older.

    I gotta say, By you repeating the lines, It almosted added a deep twist of insanity, such deep words spoken my deer.I love how you invovled seasons and time in a sort of way. At least how i interrupted it, we are all in our season, some in spring, summer, fall, and finally winter, Time is crazy and we do insane things. wonderful wonderful poem!
