i would like
to stop
feeling despair
when you
leave me
in my dreams
i would like
to stop
feeling despair
when i wake up
& stare
into the abyss of
single motherhood
& the severe lack of options
for said
single mom…
as children scream
& i slowly lose my mind
i think
“surely i am from
corrupt stock….
damaged dna
your genes
are just as deeply
resulting in said
if only
this person of despair
could go back
in time
& counsel the me
before you….”

bad bit of mothering these past days…. but, before you judge me, come live in my house for a week.
my minions are off with dusty for the week, & i slowly recover my lost mind.
hopefully enough to do more sound mothering in future days.
