Why? - Poem by Piper Brown

It feels as if my mind is torn
Halfway between black and white
Between wanting you
And not hurting you. She says
“he’s a bad choice! ”
(No! you don’t know him.)
“he is going to forget you.”
(No! he loves me now and forever!)
“You are not ready.”
(*Beep* if you know, *beep* go away)
“I’m your mother, I’m older.”
(Not always a good thing, mom)
“Stop arguing with me! ”
(whatever I’m done)
Shutting down her voice turns to a drone
Tears leak out of my eyes
Turns to poison burning me
Shaking with anger
Quivering with rage
Fingers tingling wanting to throw
Everything in my path at her
Ready to throw in the towel
Promise now broken, guilt, sadistic
Shame, I have to tell him
As I rely it to him, tears flow rapidly
All he asks, voice calm is,
“why? ”
