Nothing else fills.

Last night at dinner,
Dad watched me push on
a bump on my back,
massaging it with three fingers
in circular motions.
Hold my neck up high,
make a straight line,
shoulders back,
the bump still there.

“Your mother had that, you know.
Just get used to it.”

The only piece of you in me
is something I don't want.

Wow! It's a short piece, but very powerful in the feeling you're trying to convey.

Simple and moving, I like it!  I was thinking the bump is cancer, or?
