Guilty for taken her time away
Was it hers to begin with?
The clever friend with wider views has asked me yesterday
I didn’t know what to answer
But it was clear apparently at that moment
Guilty for not being by her side all the time
Is it that necessary to be a caring daughter?
The clever friend with her conjectures again
I do know the answer
Difficult to mouth it up at this particular moment
Guilty for not paying enough attention, nor having enough patience
Guilty for stealing time for myself and the lover I’ve found
Guilty for the lying and the hiding
Simply guilty because I’m trying to build up my life and leaving also the cat behind
Guilty because I’m using poetry to heal myself and to understand what’s happening inside this head of mine
