Painting By Numbers 4

#331

 

Your mother’s tears

Stain your cotton shirt

Trailing down

To rest

At

The

Bottom where

Your heart has

Fallen.

 

#347

 

It was my job

To look after her.

And yet,

I failed her,

Horrendously.

 

#388

 

Soon,

You know,

You won’t be

Welcome

Here

Anymore.
