Mothers and daughters

A Poem by Cassie Meno

When I was six you were right by my side
When I told you I failed my first test
When I was eight you held up my pride
When my way wasn't always the best.
When I was ten you called me your friend
And I loved you more than ever.
When I was twelve we started a trend
and said we'd be together forever.

When I was fourteen you met a man
And things started to turn inside out.
I kept telling myself, "I think I can
Survive this without a doubt."
But things didn't really turn out that way
We drifted farther and farther apart.
Now I'm sixteen, wishing things were the same
But your words are hot and sharp.

I wish I could turn back time
And tell you right from the start
That I will always love you, you're always mine
My words come straight from the heart.
What you do to me doesn't matter
I'm not in way too deep.
But just know you make my life shatter
You make it hard for me to speak.

Without you it's just not the same
As it used to be when I was young
And without you it feels like a game
That I can't win with just my toungue

You'll never know how much I miss you
But it doens't change a thing
I hope one day you see it too
And take me back under your wing

Wow. This is so sad, Cassie. It gave me chills. This is exactly how I felt back in middle school when my dad chose his alcoholism and his girlfriend over me. I'm sorry that happened to you. I really loved this poem, even though it made me sad and nostalgic. You are very talented at putting your emotions on paper. Chills, Cassie, chills.

I loved this. Very heart breaking. Ever since coming out to my mom, our relationship hasn't been the same. I hope you and your mom work things out. But I really liked the poem, especially the line about: "But your words are hot and sharp.
I wish I could turn back time
And tell you right from the start
That I will always love you, you're always mine"

I know this is from a while ago, but I just found it and i really liked it.
