You loved me the way you loved your mother,

always expecting me to fill your plate 

even if that meant mine was empty.

You thought my love for you would make me full,

but I was starving

for a home cooked meal made from memory. 

Maybe it was my fault for expecting that out of you. 

You needed a recipe 

to know how to love me right,

but when there was no cookbook in your hands,

you mixed up the ingredients and 

all i have left now is this bitter taste in my mouth.

Maybe I should stop blaming you though.

I came into the kitchen knowing you couldn't 

cook for yourself,

so why did I think you would for me?
