Monster Dearest

You held me in your stomach,

the bittersweet feeling of pregnancy.

You held me in your arms,

the sweet mothers embrass that my tiny heart urned for.

You held me in your heart,

Every moment our love grew.

But then I grew,

grew up to look like the man that you never loved.

Grew up to be rebelious and indepent.

Grew up to be exactly what you hated.

You broke my heart the day you locked me out

without love,

without a word,

without a mother.

You drained me of all that I am or ever was.

You stole everything for me and expected me to love you every day.

You always told me that there was no monster in my closet,

That was because she was right in front of me.
