Resist

Time and again

I have wished upon falling stars

closed my eyes and wished on dandelions.

I have wished at each birthday 

for the exact same thing,

a chance to stand at your side.

I fought this ride of emotion

tried to turn from the stallion

but he nuzzled my neck

until I could not say good-bye.

I hold your memory close by

a secret that I hoard

unable to share with anyone

this festering pain.

I dig deep within my chest

ripping free my shredded heart.

I resist your claim to me 

I resist the dreams you have given me.

A single hard working mom of a soon to be teenage son. A poet and story teller I have wanted to write since I was a child. This space is where I share stories about myself and my life and the creative poetry that stirs my soul. My hope is you will pull up a chair and a cup of coffee delving into the world that I offer and you find simple enjoyment for a few moments. Welcome to The Wonderful & Wacky World of One Single Mom
