No Place For You, A Poem

No place For You


Her observing sore eyes, sway from side to side

watching you with a ready tongue.

It`s her ambition to set fire with her words,

my heart has learnt to open the door and leave.



Why can`t she read my puppet face?

beautiful times wrapped up in murder,

oh my pretty pink flowers,

you have sprayed with black!



My soul no longer waits in line for you,

my heart wears a shield in your presence.

For you`re no longer of the same blood,

Instead a pirate after my treasures!



Years will go by and I will speak truth,

but for now let my soul rest in disrespect for you.

You never cared deep enough for me to care

you remain a conditional giver that I resent today.

Of course I have no way of knowing, and I am perhaps just reading my own experience into this but it speaks to me of a mother. Well done!

Hi Timntim9, thank you for stopping by.

Only through the art of forgiveness can one break free from the pain caused by family relations, speaking through my own experiences. All the best:-)

Hey, congratulations. Be sure to let me know the title and I'll probably get it. The only book of poetry I have is Robert Frost, so it'll be in good company. Thanks for the wish of inspiration, even though what I tend to write on here can't really be called inspiring. But that's why you're here, to bring balance and counter the mundane with beauty on this Hubpages seesaw.
