disclaimer

sometimes i'm terrified
of writing
i'm afraid of
reading my own pain
of reliving a moment
that will last forever
afraid of
feeling my heart
clench
and weigh me down
so i write myself disclaimers instead

eventually you'll realize...

your mother didn't want you
you mistook habit for love
performance for affection
eventually you'll realize
this isn't pain
that becomes numb
it doesn't fade with time
or with death
eventually you'll realize
your mother gave birth to her wounds
and you couldn't heal them for her
