Eyes look your last, arms take your last embrace, and you o'lips, doors of breath, place a righteous kiss.


she walked away
one
two
three
easier than her daughters' ABC's
she went away
didn't want to stay
she packed her stuff
and jumped on the next plane
going anywhere but home
wanted a new life, not the same
she didn't care
that one at a time
her babies left, died
and she walked away
easier than her daughters' ABC's

my mother left me, sold my sister on the black market and my brother died because of her addiction. this poem is for anyone who has gone through a hard time with their mother and so that they know they're not alone in this world.
