It Isn'T Her - Poem by Hazel Mc Taggart
I saw her,
From where I'm sitting in the helicopter.
Nearing the ground,
I leap far and run to her.
Throwing my arms up,
To receive a welcoming hug.
I'm pushed back with her hostility,
I fall to the ground.
Dazed and shocked,
I gaze at her eyes.
They are empty.
I shake my head,
With utter confusion.
Starting to run away with all my energy,
Finally I collapse.
My heart feels so cold,
Choking on the tears.
Crying out that I'm sorry,
I'm sorry I never came back to see you.
No-one can hear me,
These words keep passing through my strained lips.
Feeling so alone,
I’m the outsider of my own family.
I had the chance to see my mother,
Who is not my mother but a different person.
A person who is cold and hostile,
My mother is a person of warmth and welcome.
Can you hear me mum,
Come back to me.
I need the warmth of your arms,
I need my friend.
I don’t want to see you in pain,
I want to see you happy.
Am I the one to blame?
The one at fault?
In my faded dreams,
You are always helpless.
I’m trying to reach you,
I want to help you.
I am unable to,
The invisible barrier holds me back.
Struggling to get there,
Feeling your pain so strong.
Please tell me your ok.
When you visit me in my dream,
