goodbye…

The moment we separated, did you say goodbye?

Beyond the time you held me close, in your belly, you never knew me.  I hope you took care of yourself, I don’t want to think you were in peril and by all means, I hope my existence, in those few months of our lives together, didn’t jeopardize yours.

What life would have been, is not a path I want to explore.  What is my life now is because of what you did.  Maybe from a very misguided fantasy, I do have hopes your decision to turn your back and leave was a decision not taken lightly.

I cannot begin to imagine you, my mother… science set aside, your past, your childhood… your pains, your joys… love, hate… did you ever feel alive?

My mother, I don’t even know your name.
