You Were Never There

Flashing lights
Big oak doors
Where am I going?
Why am I here?
You did this to me
I don't understand why
You left everything behind
I had to clean up your mess
No room for repairs
No reason to apologize
I wouldn't forgive you even if you tried

Dad can't help it
He loses his temper
I would too, only I know better
Took everything away
And gave nothing back
Forget what happens to us
Worry about your husband
He obviously means more
While you mean nothing

I don't see you as a mother
I don't see you as a friend
Your not even a person
To me your dead
I don't need you, I can get by
You say Dad is a monster
But at least he tries
How could you live with yourself
Knowing what you did?
I don't care about you anymore
Please don't come back, just let me live

I wrote this poem about my mom after she set up a life with the man she was cheating on my dad with, packed up, and left.
