How long it’s been

How long it’s been

Since I saw you.

I used to look forward to you,

Now I dread seeing you.

I blocked all ties to you

From my mind,

My heart,

My contacts

And my social media.

Your last words,

“Kiss my ass, boy”

A reminder of what I meant to you.

I was nothing to you!

But a reminder of who you hate

Part of the Old,

To be tossed aside for the New.

I used to love you,

I used to yearn for your call,

Now? You are nothing

You are hated,

Loathed,

Dreaded.

A lousy mother

Who hated her son.


This is dedicated to all of us who have had to suffer living under a toxic parent. We all have scars from our bad times. If we’re lucky they’ll lie under our skin…

On that somber note, till next time.
