Do You Even Care?

Do you even care?
Are you even aware?
You cause me so much pain
The only feeling you should have is “Shame”
I haven’t seen you in a year
Everyday I would shed a single tear
You were my hero
But that was long ago
Do you even try
Or do you just defy
I wish I could see you
You see how much I’ve grew
But that’s not going to happen
I’m done trying to bargain
You’ve made me feel like a fool
All you are is cruel
I’m done with you being so asinine
Now is my time to shine
I will not let you pull me down
I refuse to frown
You put everything before me
Even that evil remedy
You’re my mother
But you’re starting to turn into a blur
It’s almost as if you’re a stranger
A stranger who puts my feelings in danger
So whenever you think of me, your son
Just know, that I am done

A mother can inflict such pain… there are some strange people, when hurt comes from someone you are not conditioned to expect it from, then the pain is even more excruciating.


Even The Planets

Even The Planets short poem

Pieces of day falling like severed limbs of time. Acoustic shadows drinking the pain. Exodus has started of thoughts to find an enabler, for misting voices of indecisiveness. Obscene contour abrupts the ink. Now there is blank depression, behind the

Care short poem

The noise of a crescent climbs wordlessly. In the night of dew and wind, for its native starless beams- holding the thread of a thought, walking through wall of disbelief. Before and after the murder of a spark; the heart
