Mamma would be proud

by Jenni Marie   Feb 28, 2013


Mamma would be proud;

as even though my heart feels
like a small delicate flower
crushed under two innocent unaware
pairs of children's tiny feet

whilst feeling the last four years
have been a complete sham
a complete and utter waste
of energy and time, of allowing
myself to love once more
even so;

mamma would be proud

because I haven't
allowed
myself to cry.

Not.
one.
single.
tear.

though you tossed
my heart into a blender
keeping it continously
whirling round, shattering
breaking, chopping...

hurting.

Are you proud,
mamma?
I wont allow
myself to cry

not over him.
not this time.

    This made me cry. It's beautiful.

    The part that got me the most was where you separated
    'not.
    One.
    Single.
    Tear.'
    It just gripped me because although you probably felt like crying inside you never did. A lot of people can relate to this including me as we hold a lot in as a society for fear of being 'different'.

    I like the form of this piece.
