The Story

By Paramour13, Morris, OK

My mother,
Once told me a story,
On the hillside,
When I was only nine;

The strongest storms,
Or the blissful nights;

But one night,
Was not so blissful,
I watched her go,
As I screamed in fright;

From that night,
That the story she told,
Of love and glory;

Was only a reminder of,
Her own false hope,
And I, myself,
Let go of the story;
