Mommy, I'm scared.Mature

On those nights that I couldn't sleep,

and I stayed up all night so I couldn't meet you in my dreams,

so I could leave you all alone like you left me,

I wanted you to be there,

because I was scared.

I was scared of not having you, my mom, with me,

to dry my tears and rock me to sleep.

But now,

I've avoided you for so long.

And I packed my life away from you and moved on.

I let you have your space.

And I let you become someone I hate.

But now, you're trying. And I don't have a clue how to react.

This is what I've always wanted.

But....I'm scared.

What if it's another trick?

Another lie?

What if I give in again and then you say goodbye?

What then?

I can't just let you in.

Because I'm scared.

I'm scared of having you there.

The End
