Faint memories

Devastated me

The fallacy of belief

Holding onto fiction

Artistically describing

Each and every interaction

Remembering Christmas morning

Thinking we were a family

Haunted memories

Seeing who made you

Each time I thought

Even for an instance

The other half of me

Finally wanted me

Just an illusion I created

Wanting family

Fake Memories

Created multi parent household

Lasted until I was 10 years old

Held me and allowed me to grow

Didn’t even know

Parents weren’t suppose to go

Slowly realized

The one sided family

Angered memories

Woke up realizing

Single parent household

Faults amplified

The rejection taken hold

Half of what made me

No longer wanted me

That’s my family

Ignored memories

Siblings visited

Far off and distant

Never an embrace

Barely a hello

Realized, for the first time

I was alone

Abandoned by family
