Mom,

Never have I felt so disconnected,

Shut out, alone and unimportant.

Never have you been so blissfully blind;

Utterly unaware of my thoughts and feelings.

Do you even care?

Have you even thought to look my way?

Care about any of my thoughts or

Anything I might have to say?

And why is it that whenever I try

To share something with you,

As if they have no meaning,

You let my words fade?
