55 Non-fiction – Mother

I said, ‘Please talk to me.’ She didn’t.

I pleaded, ‘Please look at me.’ She didn’t.

I looked at my Dad. He stood by a corner, helpless.

Tears rolled down my eyes. I wished I could take back everything I ever did to upset her.

Nothing could be done now. Mom simply lay there. Lifeless.

    1. Writing has been my vent….not just in the negative sense….for the longest time. Words sometimes help in releasing pent-up emotions more than we realise.

      Will surely read your post. Thanks for your comment Aparna. 🙂
