Happy Mothers Day!

by Aliceinhorrorland

A hole inside of me,

One that can never be filled,

I wish I could have foreseen,

The memory that I would build.

- - - - - - - - - - - 

Only just a kid, with eyes made of stone,

A girl unfamiliar to me,

Now numbness is all that's shown,

Bad things go in two, good things come in three.

A little rhyme that had once been true to me..

- - - - - - - - - -

I used to pick roses and flowers,

Delivering love with a laughable smile,

But the days had since gone sour,

Trying to tell yourself “bad things in life are just trials..”

- - - - - - - - - -

People say the words happy Mother’s Day,

As if they just assume you celebrate,

But for me it’s just a dark dark grey,

And a big pile of smuggling hate.

Your backstory is filled with twists,

But others roll the words off their tongue with no effort,

The words never leave me, not even lisps..

As I try to erase her from my forever.

- - - - - - - - - -

But things can never really be undone,

I’ve learned that the hard way, life is a play that must go on,

Although you want to change the script,

It has already been made and gone.

- - - - - - - - - -

So I guess what I’m trying to say is,

Light never really leaves, it’s just concealed in the dark,

Life does what it does,

And past is but a small shark,

And if you keep swimming along life,

Maybe one day it will die off,

Don’t lose your hopes and don’t leave your dreams,

Because you’ll regret it, just believe me..

Great poem!! I like that you bolded some things, because it showed the importance of them. I don't know if that was intentional or not, but I'm assuming that it was. This poem is really amazing. The Types of phrases you use " A little rhyme that had once been true to me.." are like "WHOA". I like that you let the readers in a little. You had just the right amount of emotion, and heart-felt, mushy feelings in there. Great job!

Keep Writing! <3
