No Take Backs

Wearisome
I am
knowledge
needy
think not
aware I am
hiding
desire
constant reassurance
child like
wonder
ease of love
striped
torn asunder
innocence lauded
betrayed
I cry
tears
hollow
told
not the same
never the same
always the same
hello
good-bye
why do you hurt me
make me cry?
Stoic
chin up
see not
blurred vision
watch
walking away
nary a look back
so long
fare thee well
never come back
you hear?

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
