Lost Without Your Arms

Lost Without Your Arms

A Poem by SamanthaSweeney
"

I suppose sometimes a Mother's love is all we need.

"

Lost Without Your Arms

 


I’m lost again.

Somewhere

Between the places I

Never really knew.

 

Should I tell them?

Do they listen?

 

Because I’m hurting so bad.

I’m allowing toxins... into my blood;

Sins into my soul...

Until I feel nothing at all.

Just a sting in my eyes �"

That I never succumb to.

 

And I can’t even write!

Words won’t come to me...

I’m lost

With nothing but

Society’s addictions

To indulge myself in �"

To give me a sore head.

 

Because it feels like so

Long

Ago that you held me.

But I’m not a baby anymore...

I wasn’t... even then.

Although I sit here!

And write the words

I can’t bring myself to say;

 

It’s too hard.

It’s too sore.

 

I can’t do this.

 

What would you have said?

 

The last time I saw you...

What did you say?!

Was I eager to leave?

Did I hold you as tight...

As you held me?
