The Sandbox Writing Challenge #28 — Can You See Me?

girl-in-trash

This week’s challenge is Do you see something of yourself in this little child? If so, what?

Trashed

I’ve been no better than trash
mindlessly tossed away – forgotten

I.
Mother, how I begged
for your attention
craved it
but you couldn’t be bothered
you tossed me aside – abandoned

II.
Oh how I loved you
worked so hard to please you
gave up my youth
to be by your side
you tossed me out – homeless

III.
Did our friendship
mean more to me than you?
I devoted my time to you
gave you every piece of me
but you too tossed me away – crushed

IV.
Our marriage was built on lies
no deep love to be found
I was a doormat
a battleground of abuse
left out in the cold – tossed away.

Now to pick myself up
toss you all out of memory – trashed
