Word of the Day Challenge #68-Untitled Poem

Tears shimmer
unshed
gathered in the corner
salt slick cheek
turn away
hide my face.
I do not want to end this.
I do not want to cause this.
Pretend you see not
pretend you feel not
that way it does not hurt as much
when you push me away.
Words roil around
burning my tongue
black vomit
coating
invading
my inner self
turning to bruise
turning to hatred
ever time you look at me.
You broke me open
you forced me to examine
to see
to realize
the truth at the core of me
the truth that allowed my soul
my dreams
my needs
to finally be seen…..
be acknowledged…..
be accepted.
Voices raised
vicious vitriol
know how to tear
used in a war
neither of us can bear.
Sorrow
bleak
crushing
blinding us to the truth
we justify
our loneliness
because to actually admit
to actually say
my heart is yours darling
please do hold with care
is harder to do
then to force you away.

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
