hey, i was out of commission and i missed posting and reading terribly last week. i know i missed y'all. and i came up with this today...


*untitled #37*

i can recall getting the chicken pox
having one of the worst cases they'd seen
i was so depressed
and against my wishes (as i recovered)
you took pictures of my scarred blistered body

i can remember recitals, programs, plays
that i participated in
that i was featured in
that you were too tired to attend
and because those white kids couldn't sing anyway

i remember worrying about you
after you would call me at school venting
about my father and how he is
and your desire for divorce
convincing me that i (your youngest child) was your only ally

and worrying that it was my fault
that time (the 2nd time) you attempted suicide

and taking care of you and the grandchildren (my neices) you
begged to visit you during my 8th/9th month of pregnancy
(you were all miserable and sick!)

and wondering why you're ALWAYS sick

and wondering why you stress me so

and wondering why you zap all of my energy

and this time, when i needed you to help me in
my recovery of my tonsillectemy and
all you did was mostly sleep and stress me and make me sicker

this is it mommy.
no more.
