I see you every day
yet do I know you?
Of course we talk,
but what do those words mean?

Birth, you have given,
But Mother, you have not been
The lady at my door
who will tuck me in.

The lady who speaks of love,
talks of angels and butterflies.
The woman who tells stories,
wicked, evil tales, so sly.

Master of irony,
you have achieved.
Doting on wishes
isn't all a girl needs.

So, your hair, your skin, your voice
are familiar to me.
But the blood that runs thick
means nothing to me.

Relationship between a mother and daughter. A bad one.

Hey i too have a bad relationship with my mother. Due to our relationship I made the decision to move from her to my father about a year or two ago . So i can relate to your poem. Great job in conveying your emotions . Sometimes the fewer words to conveying emotions the better. I hope things work out with you and your mother who ever you wrote this piece for if it wasnt about your own relationship with your mother. Keep on writing and keep on feeling. Without feeling theres no point in writing. Great job again
