Wanna Know?

Are we playing games?
I am sorry
I cannot let you go.
I try.
I shunt you from memories
from dreams
but still
you appear.
You break through
smell of oil
of grease
of tobacco
calms me
envelopes me
why can you not see
what I have to give.
Than I realize.
Not me.
You walked into a trap 
of your own
thinking I would wait
I can no longer hide
tears of burnt amber
you feel are your due
guess what darling
I have realized…..
I have made my resolutions……
would you not like to know?

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
