A Mother's Prison

by Linda Slusser
(Lansing, MI)

When the decision was made that you would do life,
It cut through me deeply and felt like a knife.

It seemed like a dream when they took you away,
I held back the tears I fight to this day.

My heart began pounding..I felt every beat,
My mind became twisted my thoughts incomplete.

My body was numb and nothing seemed real,
I constantly battle the anguish I feel.

All that I have are memories to caress,
My grief and sorrow are hard to express.

I can not imagine the depth of your pain,
At times I feel I might go insane.

I feel such heartache..it will not let me be,
I am in my own prison till the day you are free.

Great expression of feelings
by: Russ

I can really see your pain, best of all the sad poems here. I pray you get your relief and that things can improve. I share your tears and grief and just want in the worst way for things to get better for you.
