He is physically gone, while I'm mentally gone

He is physically gone, while I'm mentally gone

A Poem by Ashley
"

I hope you enjoy and this writing make sense

"
   I’m so sad; depressed what difference does anything make?
The world is a messed up place filled with unwanted misery
You don’t even notice me as I pace back and forth back from your room
Glazing at your picture, you have handsome face
You’re my only son, you are all I have
Yet the teenage years are so difficult to deal with
You’re naïve, annoying, and pushy
Yet I still love you
Michael, Mike, Mikey, baby, son… How? What?
Why are you moving out at only age 16?
Fine, leave me, leave me all alone, because who would want to be with me?
Just because you have a part time job working at a fast food place doesn’t mean you can afford every bill!
Let me help, I will even pay for your college if you continue living
Near me, stay at our home that you grew up in
All these years I have raised you, don’t leave me too

   *Cell-phone rings*
I need to stop talking to your picture and place it back in your photo frame
I need to stop hyperventilating
I need to get ready to go to my own sons funeral
I need to get dressed in all black
I need to show up to my own sons funereal
I need to sell my house so I could pay to put my son in a grave

   *Door-bell rings*
My son, my son, where are you?
Come inside! What are you doing out in the cold?
I told you to wear your helmet when you ride your bike!
Go to your room and get changed as I cook dinner
Hello? Mike? Why aren’t you answering me?

   *House phone rings*
I need to stop this and go outside, they’re gone
I need to face the facts that my son was murdered
I need to stop crying and start thinking
I need to be strong… for him

Wow! That was powerful Ashley! It really took the mind for a roller coaster ride as it transitioned from each stanza. The end was like a bomb going off, finding out the reason for everything. It's a piece that makes person think about what they have and what they might loose. Great Ink!

Extremely power filled. A mother's greatest fear that she can in no way ever control.
This makes perfect sense. Brings reality a bit close to home in our thoughts of the potential of what could happen in life.
