I hear you; curdling my blood
I feel you; I start pulling out my hair
Would you stop screaming in my ear
It is you; I, DO HEAR,…. I, DO HEAR YOU!

Leave me alone
Let it be, just me
My son; I love dearly

Pain & hurt seething under my skin
Every time I think of what it was; then
You kicked me while I was down
You lied to me; left me to drown

You think a love poem is to ensue?
You believe there is hope for me & you?
I am not second class nor second rate
Next time, I won’t hesitate!
