You left me broken.
As I look back on our years together,
You were my shoulder to cry on.
My blanket of comfort and warmth.
You led me to believe that I could trust you.
You made me want to be just like you.
Now nothing feels the same.
I wish I didn’t still miss your smell.
I wish I didn’t still see your face everywhere.
I wish I knew then that you were going to hurt me.
But now I know better,
So I pray to god that I will never have to vanish.
Vanish from my kids,
Like you did to me.
Dear mom, I don’t want to be like you anymore
