Dying Inside

Location

My heart wants to speak.


My eyes want to smile.


My mouth remains shut


But there’s a bad feeling in my gut.


I miss you mom.


But this is so dumb.


Why did you change?


Is it because of age?


You use to be happy with dad


And I know he is mad.


Can’t you see he is dying inside?


Why did you have to leave his side?


I miss seeing both of you happy.


The way it used to be.


Can’t you see?


                                                                    We are all dying inside.
