April Poem a Day Challenge – Day 12

Today’s prompt is to write a guilty poem. Every mother knows that emotion so here’s to all of us:

As night falls so does the soft sway
of longing for what’s she missed
Many hands demanding
Did she hear the school story
The simple truth in words
left unsaid
The heartbeat of hurt
echoing in the eaves
In grey morning light she prays
she can be a better mother today
