My Mothers Cry

My mother's cry is a 
long hated diary. 
Loneliness is the 
cause of her nightmares. 

My father was selfish 
with his needs 
but gracious with his wants, 
my mother's anger 
is deflated by her mistakes.

She smiles at the 
soiled sweetness of her 
story, her carelessness is 
distracted from her truth, 
her punishment is her steps 
drifting toward the same door. 

My father's care is
by his lack of loving.
My mother needing his love, 
and my father never willing 
to let it go from his side.

    Love kept inside is like unplanted seeds, but when sown there is a great harvest for all. Lovely, but sad poem. God Bless.D.

    Sean, am I wrong or do you live in the shadow of depression? It is a place without honor bereft of joy, displacement in a world that cannot be understood. What is there to exist in a life of silence? Allan

    Nothing hits quite as hard as the personal subject matter. I can tell this is something you've lived with for a long time. Great work. -Andy

    So profound.Its never too late to be able to share love..These situations which are not rare pains the children so much.Lets keep loving our parents for who they are..Maybe that would help them following our example..Very deep poem

    No one that I know has written about this dilemna in a poem as you many of our families are fractured and the circle must be broken! In spite of the past. Annalise
