House Of Cold - Poem by sandy nobody

as i walked in
i felt a chill in the air
i had this feeling
just to get out of there

instead of leaving
i decided to stay
my curiosity was
getting to me that day

many people
lived in this old house
lots of children
a husband and his spouse

as i walked
from room to room
deep inside
i felt a sense of doom

i watched
as the children play
they seemed
happy and laughing away

i saw the dad
he stood quietly nearby
just watching
as his children started to cry

hearing the childrens screams
i turned around to see
then that horrible
feeling overwhelmed me

i know why now
this house was so cold
cause of her
she needed control

she allowed no love
no feelings, no laughter
if kids were caught
a beating came after

she was cold as ice
she had no heart
she was dead inside
of her, i wanted no part

but
i really did love her
for she was
My Mother

    Dont you just wish you could thaw her....
    Find that thing that made her that way...
    And change it....
    Wish your love was all that was needed...
