I Will Not Mention

I will not mention our polaroid
the only one we own.
I will not mention the way mom says
my antics mimic your own.
I will not mention that fateful day
when you left too quick to go out.
I will not mention the tragedy
it's something we don't talk about.
I will not mention the way I look
because that's like you too.
I will not mention anything
to make her think of you.
I will not mention it was an accident
it seems a poor excuse,
for why were here without you
and the changes we went through.
I will not mention it ever
that private burden is mine
nobody will hold it but me.
I will not mention it weights me down
because this weight is mine alone.





'of the bad things that happened the worst is that my dad died when i was so little. It is a burden like they say. And nobody, my mom nor nobody knows how this private burden weighs on me.'
