Why did you go mommy?

Why did you go mommy?

A Poem by SmileBig :)

From the point of view of a mentally disabled 17 year old boy :)

My World Is Scary

Unknown, Unchanged

My Life Is Dreary

So Simple, So Plain.

My World is Apart

Ripped Into Slices Of 2

Just like my heart

It's breaking for you.

I miss old times,

Remember our plays?

I'd hold a smile,

For days upon days!

I had a best friend,

And a guardian too

Together till the end,

That's what I promised you.

"Never hate me"

You said day after day

"Hate can never be"

I kept hearing you say.

Then one night,

Just like all the rest

Off went my light,

And you tucked me in bed.

You said "i love you"

Before you closed the door.

"I do too" I whispered

As I heard your body hit the floor..

I went out to check

What happened now?

I saw you and gasped,

A scream escaped my mouth.

You were vomiting red,

And I had no idea what to do,

The hospital came,

They were trying to save you.

I didn't understand,

Why were they taking you away?

I held your hand,

Knowing it would be your last day.

You went to a white room,

You were hooked up to wires and machines

"She'll die soon"

Said the doctor so mean!

Why didn't they save you mommy?

Why did they break my heart?

Mommy you promised not to leave me!

Now my chest feels sharp.

Nothing will be the same again,

I don't have you by my side.

I am seventeen,

And I think I lost my smile.

Raw. Short bursts of expression make this even better. I have some experience with this subject matter. It felt true to me.

Well done.
