You and Me Mum

Remember the black mark mum?
Remember all those times?
You and me mum 
With all that dirt and grime

The bloated ego and the fight
Crying and those endless nights
You and me mum
And your suggestions of wrong and right

That feeling of darkness enveloping us
That claustrophobia
You and me mum
And all that nausea

The crawling under the shadows
The denials
You and me mum
And all those turbulence and trials

57 days of silence
And a telephone bill of 15,000
You and me mum
And finding ways for all this to end

The fallacy of making love
The doubt thereafter
You and me mum
And all the vodka and laughter

The dawning truth
The realization
You and me mum
And the satisfaction

I love you
With all my heart
You and me mum
Till death do us ‘part

    Liked reading this peom. Very well written. Somehow I feel you are more poetically gifted becuase your poetry is more heart warming than your prose. 🙂 keep the ink flowing or key board running, rather 🙂

    To sum up seven years in this space so well is just incredible.

    Made me go through all thoughts that probably would have come while you were writing this.

    Proud of you.

    Words don’t exist to suggest what I think about this one. So I’ll make two up, and this ain’t no Monaghan or Scorcsese hangover.

    Absafuckinglutely Awefuckinsome.

    Keep them coming ma’am. It floats and flows like few do.
