Hi, I'm Mia. 

Welcome to my blog! Poetry and musings on life, marriage, and parenting - I write about it all. Except cheese. Cheese is gross. 

Dissected: A Postmortem of Betrayal

Dissected: A Postmortem of Betrayal

Do you remember the day
You showed your true colors
No one was around
Except your little dog watching
I didn’t understand why
Your mask was convincing
Fooling us all
Hatred spewed
Your pile of dirty gifts
To go with your venomous whispers
Two faces are too many
He didn’t know
And I had to tell
But I couldn’t say the words
So I wrote them down
The joke’s on you
You get more flies with honey
Not the crunch of feet
Your name an epithet
Hurled against the grass
Door slammed shut
A thousand stings of silence
I wonder if you knew
The courage filling me
We don’t talk that way often
The compelling evidence
Phone on the floor
Your voice so tiny
We laughed
In the empty house
Floors so sticky
No he is not there
What did he say to you
When he said goodbye
I wish I could see your face
The way you saw mine
