From Me to You, A Poem

He sees me
He befriends me
He drives me
He includes me
He needs me
He calls me
He waits for me
He loves me

He carries me
He spins me
He supports me
He draws for me
He worries about me
He feeds me
He watches me
He is in awe of me

Baby

He nudges me
He scolds me
He questions me
He fights with me
He compares me

Baby

He doesn’t see me

They smile
They laugh
They love
They cry
They shop
They dance
They play
They expect

Baby

He moves me from home
He works all day and all night
He shares his life elsewhere
He shares his dreams elsewhere
He smiles and laughs elsewhere
He supports and understands elsewhere

Baby

I go through the motions
I love them
They love me
They hate me
They need me…to clean, cook, supply

I break

He sees me
He resents me
He doubts me
He yells at me
He scowls at me
He ignores me
He avoids me
He’s lost faith in me
He overlooks me

First girl,
then woman,
then wife,
Then teacher,
Then mother,
Then confused,
Then ignored.

He saw me….once.
Where did I go?

About goplayintraffic

My Blog, which began as a mommy blog and turned into a writing website, www.write2survive.com, is the product of my years of being home with my children and trying to find ways to keep myself sane. I have always had this feeling, coming from a single mother, that I have to contribute financially and that I have to be able to take care of myself and my children. having been married, being a NYC school teacher, having four children, living in Newtown, CT and trying to find a way to get through each day with a smile has always been something I've strived for. My stories, articles and poems will do a lot of things but mostly make you feel. I think that is what is so wonderful about having the ability to write. I have been given the gift of taking my emotions and transferring them to written word. Once that is done, I can share those words with others who may feel better, maybe just for a moment, but better nonetheless having read my words. I am glad you are here and hope you will stay:)
