"Don't tell me the skies the limit when there are foot prints on the moon."

Each night our eyes would shed a tear
Knowing that she was nowhere near.
Filling our nights full of despair
Yet, she was never there.
The pain stung us each with a prong
Laughing, for with him, she was all night long.
“My children come first” she would always say,
And still with him, she stayed for days.
Hungry, lonely, and story untold,
That’s how my life was at seven years old.
Playing and loving was all on my mind,
And of course my mother, who left us behind.
For she was in love with a man we knew not,
Besides as a cruel person who never got caught.
So each night she went to him and left us alone,
And for his kids, she cared more than her own.
The last time I saw her before I moved to my dad,
Through the tears in her eyes, she looked slightly glad.
I hold back my cry, still to this day
When I think of how she pushed us away.

I love the emotion you instilled in this poem. I felt as though I could see everything going on as I kept on reading. Vividly and emotionally entertaining.

The construction and constant rhythmatic approach taken here is done excellently. Great job

The only easy day; was yesterday.

This poem is very deep. Im not really a free verse writer but this is something that strikes me as a strong poem. Many people don't write about how they feel about things or what goes on in their life. But this poem will help a lot of people relate to you. Good Job!! :)

WOW!!! that was simply amazing, you told a great story and it flowed great. The decscriptive language makes it feel like it was happening to me, that's my favorite kind of poetry. The kind of poetry that takes you on an emotional rollercoaster
