Dear Mother, Why?

Dear mother,
why did you leave?
I only came here with him.
I only kissed him.
I only love him.
Didn't you once say
to accept love in any way,
just keep you heart and arms open?
I only see no harm
in being with the guy I adore.
Why did you leave?
I thought you said
you'd keep your head
and love me despite what I've done or said.
I'm still here
the this rack of clothing,
head swirling with rage, love, and self-loathing.
Why did you leave?
Don't you love your only child?
Don't you love your son?
