Emptiness

Emptiness long poem

Photo by Lance Neilson

When I was born you were right there,
You raised me with true love and care.
You fed me, clothed me and loved me dear.
Too young to realize, hard to bear…
I’ve grown up without you here, Mom.
Even wrestled with myself, “please, calm”.
Facing heartaches emotionally,
Sometimes, I even cry bitterly…
You are supposed to watch and guide me,
Protect me, but why it won’t be?
I long for your kiss and your embrace.
Even hugging me tight, just once please?
I asked “papa” more about you,
Even my own mother-in-law.
I question them if you love me too,
Their reply:”she left you years ago”…
Why Mom, you left me all alone?
Twenty-five years, I long for you.
Never even saw me when I mourn.
Too long, I haven’t said “I Love You”…
For what reasons you don’t love me?
You’re so unfair, left me in vain.
Papa is dead, can’t you even see?
I’m fatherless, crying in the rain…
I feel the chill, lonely and blue.
I want to shout, scream, I hate you.
Your memories, the happiness I knew,
Making me sick but must continue…
The pain, the hurt I have inside,
Longing for your comfort to have.
Missing You Three years Dad, not that bad.

Twenty-five years Mom, where is your Love?

Saturday evenings reek of stale words, aching bones and a running out of things to feel dressed in a darkness where your silence meets mine and no sound seeps in through the fine crisscross weave of the blanket soggy with
