Tears on my pillow

mom's poems

Tears on my pillow

Tears on my pillow

Mom put me in

Bed the other

Night. And

She started

Yelling at me

I never could

Figure out why?

I just cried

To myself

And told

Myself it

Would be


That she

Was having

One of her bad days

But as the warm tears fell

down my face my body felt like

splitting into and wasting away.
