Hurt When I Look at You

Hurt When I Look at You: A Poem About Mother and Daughter – K.A.E Grove

It hurts when I look at you

Your chin raised so high

So full of self-virtue

You don’t hear my cry

.

Your eyes full of judgement

As you survey around

Your lips spill your disappointment

As my confidence you pound

.

Your words so critical

Delivered with a smile

Your opinion of me brutal

Your own child you revile

.

For years I have tried

To earn more than your love

Needing your friendship, respect and pride

And receiving none of the above

.

Locked together by blood

Our family ties tight

What should be ours sacred

Has been killed by the never-ending fight

.

So please believe me when I say

That our time has reached its end

I never meant for it to be this way

But my life I’m no longer willing to defend

.

I miss what we could have had

But it was only a dream

I like my life good or bad

And no longer look to gain your esteem

.

It hurts when you look at me

Wanting to be close

And knowing we never will be

Not mother and daughter… now only foes
