As she ignores me
i try to explain,
the pain that's inside me
just wont go away.
ive told her before
multiple times,
why wont she listen, ive always wondered why...
 I tell her he hurts me
and that i truly hate him. i say that things arent working out.
i dont want to leave her every weekend, but obviously she doesnt want me around.
 Were not as close as we used to be.
im a disappointment
is what they both tell me.
im not the perfect daughter,
and im sorry im sorry im not.
but their not the perfect parents,
no one is perfect at all.
  Ive never minded their divorce,
in fact im happy that they are.
but i wish she'd understand the pain
i go through seeing him.
 i remember i was seven
and he called me all these names,
names that i had hated and was scared to even say.
she told to get over it,
that he just has a temper.
she didnt  tell him stop.
she acted like it didnt matter.
 i came home sunday,
scared, my leg in pain.
i told her what had happened and  i was only ten.
she told me it didnt matter that he is sorry for what he did.
i stood there looking at her
holding tears behind.
but most of all i wondered why she didnt do a thing.
does she care about me ?
does she understand?
does she realize i ignore her now
cause she ignored me then?
  she still does make me see him,
each and every weekend.
except when i am hurt like now
i dont tell her anything.
i tell my friend who likes to listen
and hear what my dad's done.
my best friend's always there for me
i can always count on him.
  sometimes id come home
and still tell mom what happened.
but even as i do,
she never wants to listen.
 she never helped or ever really listened.
at least i got my bestie now to take the new position.
and even though i do,
i never tell again.
"things were fine"
id tell her
"there's no need to try"
shed look at me with anger,
and yell and scream and hate
id just leave her standing there not caring what she thinks.
but even as i walk,
and continue to ignore,
i still do always wonder why she never cared before.
