I Love You, Mother This work has been published in the Teen Ink monthly print magazine.

   Why are we so far, Mother?

I want to reach you,

but something's there.

Something's holding me back.

I hope you know

I love you, but to show it

there's something there.

I can't break away,

I want to be closer.

Our love is hidden;

protected by fear,

but you must know, Mother,

I love you,

God, do I love you ...



Why can't I say it, Mother?

I know it's there,

it wants to come out.

I need you to know it,

but something's there.

Something's around my heart,

making it shiver;

begging for warmth.

Help me open up,

to show you I care.

I do have feelings,

my emotions are there,

but you must know, Mother,

I love you,

God, do I love you ...
