mother's revenge

i broke your heart
i made you cry.

was that why
you didn’t say goodbye
before leaving?

if buckets of tears
could compensate—
but it’s too late.

and now i walk
the path you walked.

if you had wanted revenge
just to let me know
how it hurts
you have it.

it’s my turn to cry, mother.
