Quiet Pain
21 October, 1999
author: Rebecca Ditch-Hammack (aka Dreamer)


Once again I sit in disappointment of you
Your lack of caring has hit me full force
Not of what you have done
But of what you have not

A day designated as my very own
You have decided was unimportant
Not to rejoice in my birth
Makes everything I do for you seem bitter

I should be used to it by now
You've done it so many times
But again I hold to the chance
Maybe this year, but no

I try to understand your lack
But you never try to understand mine
Acknowledgement of my being
Celebration of my life

I sit alone once again
Tears form at the corners of my eyes
As I bite my lip and try not to cry
I hold back the pain of my heart

365 days you had to remember
To plan but never the less
Excuse of "no time" does not ride
This time I don't buy into your game

5 minutes of time is all it would take
To release me so the hurt would not be
Setting me off for a season
Now I feel homesick hurt and used

So I bask in what you lack
A silent pain unseen
As you ask yet again is something wrong
I shake my head, and seethe
