The sun melted into the glamorous sky
The moon stood there, hidden by sweet lullabies.

But mommy was crying, her day had been hard
The tears in her eyes twinkled just like the stars.

Her face wasn't happy like it should have been
And though she was saddened, she forcefully grinned.

I wanted to see Mommy smile through it all...
I painted a picture on her bedroom walls.

I told her to look, just to come in and see
But Mommy was angry... she wasn't happy.

She threw me down hard on the cold wooden floor
Then picked me up, slamming my head on the door.

She yelled and she screamed, then she hit me once more
She slapped me till I couldn't see anymore.

My heart then stopped beating, my laugh went unheard
Then Mommy got up without saying a word.

She looked at the walls splattered with my young blood
Then fell to the ground in her tears with a thud.

She looked at my face, then she looked all around
Then wrote on the walls with the first thing she found.

Then, after she finished, she wanted self harm....
She sat on the ground, putting me in her arms.

She reached for the knife she had placed on her bed
Then stabbed her own body... she cried as she bled.

The words on the wall echoed throughout the room...
"I love you so much, Mommy... get better soon!"
An older poem that i wrote :)

Very dark, very gloomy. As far as the aim went you hit a bullseye and it was very well done. I'd say this is a professional work of art being that not many people know how to make words sing, even with such a sad tone. I am curious as to how you came up with the story, though. Has your past been haunted by bad memories? Does this poem make those memories less painful or are they just on a page now? If you took this to an unbiased competition then you would rank very high through excellent visuals and emotional attatchment. Good Job

Usually when I say "I'm crying" I mean it in the "this is so sad" kind of way. Not this time. I'm actually, literally crying. I read the last line and my heart contracted; my body tingled; my tears fell. That was like a knife to my heart, stabbing and then slicing upwards.

It's a great poem, a sad, but great poem.
I love how you wrote it down, You're one of my favorite poetists.

I heard that this kind of things happen in reallife too. It's just so sad.

This poem hit me hard.

I was abused, both my sister and I, by a sadistic step-father. Then surreal experiences while on ground manoeuvres with the U.S. Army in Vietnam left me with PCSD. We used to self-medicate with weed & booze.

I can't feel your pain. but I can empathize and be a friend.

It's a good thing I forgot how to cry. Otherwise, I'd be drowning right now.

This gave me chills. I kinda hate it, but only because it's so effective.

Please take that as the compliment it was intended to be.
