It Will Happen

Tears
streak
drip from eyes
fall to chin
hollow pain
erupting
bringing me to my knees
gasping
head forward
drool
as I sob
nothing has hurt more
than this
feeling discarded
unwanted
even though
I know
deep within
this is not the truth
pain roils
never ending.
Tears continue to seep
stand beneath the shower
sobbing
how could this happen
when I had given so much
bringing forth life…..
I knew this day would come
when I was no longer number one
independence gained
mom’s loss
tender pain
does it ever end?
Or will I cry these tears forever?
A river.
An ocean.
It hurts.
