Poetry Thursday "Mothers Blue"

Poetry Thursday

Mothers Blue
Blue, blue, the essence of you
The clothes, the rooms, in every hue
A color that was never me
It caused us both to disagree
Orange, green, purple, red
Other colors, I loved instead

Blue, blue, the essence of you
Acted out, in every hue
Melancholy permeated
All the rooms decorated
Slit wrists, closed fist
Vital bonds sadly missed

Blue, blue, was all about you
Not a thing, a child could do
Your rules, your way
Opposing views and I’d pay
Suppressed by you, I’d submit
Differences you’d not permit

Blue, blue, the essence of you
Your house, your view
Wasn’t long and I was gone
Arguments, continued on
Opposing tastes, opposing plights
Now free to explore my rights

Blue, blue, who knew?
My child would love every hue
Been a while since you passed
The inherent love for blue is cast
As my daughter adorns her space
What ever she loves, I’ll embrace

Fascinating poem! Well done, you! (And especially well done for getting yourself out of that situation).

Thank you ladies for your lovely comments......I'm glad I made the choice to embrace the differences between my daughter and I.

Peace and giggles Sherrie
