Is This Love?

By @MeaningfulMee

Is This Love?

Is this love?

Hey mommy,

Just wondering when daddy will be home?

Just wondering where he’s gone?

No, no, mommy!

He’s not gone forever, 

He’ll be back. 

He loves me too much,

He’ll be back.

Hey mommy,

Daddy’s been gone for a little while now.

He will be back though,

He has to come back.

He loves me.

Hey mommy,

Do you think daddy is coming back?

Do you think he loves me?

He does love me, right?

Hey mommy,

Dad’s not coming back. 

Dad doesn’t love me.

At least not enough.

Hey mommy,

Who’s this?

I don’t know if I like him.

I don’t know if he likes me.

I don’t know if he likes you.

Hey mommy,

Why is he here?

I don’t like him.

He doesn’t like me.

Mom, he doesn’t like you.

Hey mommy,

What’s that on your arm?

Oh, it’s a bruise.

Did he give that to you, mommy?

Does he hurt you?

Hey mommy,

Look at my arm.

Hey, look, mommy.

Hey, look, we’re twins.

Hey mommy,

Does he love us?

He says he does.

Hey mommy,

Is this love?

Hey mommy,

This isn’t safe mommy,

Mommy, I’m scared.

Aren’t you scared?

Is love scary?

Is this love?

Hey mom,

I’m sorry,

I got suspended.

But please don’t tell him.

I don’t want him to know mom.

Please, mom.

Hey mom,

You told him, didn’t you?

Hey mom,

Do you have any concealer? 

Hey mom,

In school there asking me about it.

What do I say, mom?

Tell me, mom.

I don’t want them to take me away.

Hey mom,

I’m sorry,

I forgot what I was meant to say. 

I love you, mom.

Hey mom,

I miss you.

Hey mom,

They talked to me.

They say if you leave him, 

You can have me back.

Isn’t that great mom?

Hey mom,

I can’t wait to see you,

You’ll leave him, won’t you?

You love me, don’t you?

You love me enough?

Hey mom,

I still miss you.

Hey mom,

You won’t leave him, will you?

You don’t love me, do you?

You don’t love me enough?

Hey mom,

Do you miss me?

Even just a little bit?

Hey mom,

I’m sorry.

It’s my fault.

I wasn’t loveable enough.

I wasn’t enough.

Hey mom,

I met a guy.

He’s kind to me.

I love him, mom.

He loves me, mom.

Hey mom,

You’re gonna be a mother in law.

Do you want to come?

Hey mom,

You’re a mother in law.

Hey mom,

You’re gonna be a grandmother.

Hey mom,

You’re a grandmother, 

Its a girl.

Do you want to come meet her?

Hey mom,

Long time no see.

Hey mom,

Got any concealer?

Hey mom,

I’m scared again.

Hey mom,

Forget what I said.

Everythings fine.

I’m fine.

So fine.

I’m in love.

This is love.

Isn’t it?

Hey mom,

I need more concealer, a lot more concealer?

Hey mom,

Do they make concealer for babies skin?

Should they have to make concealer for babies skin?

Hey mom,

I’m in love. 

I swear this is love.

I swear it is.

Hey mom,

What should she say?

I don’t want them to take her away.

Hey mom,

They are taking her away.

But why are they taking her away?

This is love.

I swear this is love.

Hey mom,

She’s gone.

They took her away.

Hey mom,

Did you lie to me?

Is this even love mom?

Answer me for once mom?

Is this love?

Hey mom,

It’s all my fault isn’t it mom?

He tells me it is.

I think it is.

Do you think it is?

Hey mom,

Any chance of more concealer?

Hey mom,

I can’t live without her, mom.

How do you live without me?

Hey mom, 

They say I can have her back if I leave him.

But it’s my fault, isn’t it?

He tells me she’s better off without me anyway.

I don’t know if I believe him.

Do you believe him?

Hey mom, 

She is better off without me.

I’m not good enough for her.

Like I’m not good enough for you.

Hey mom,

He says he loves me.

The thing is I don’t think I love him anymore.

Hey mom,

He says no one else will love me if I leave him.

Will anyone else be able to love me, mom?

Hey mom,

I stayed.

No one else will love me.

Hey mom,

I can’t live without her.

Hey mom,

He says he will love me till the day I die.

I don’t know if I want him to love me any longer.

Hey mom,

I miss her, 

I can’t live without her.

Hey mom,

I don’t want him to love me anymore.

Hey mom,

Bye mom.
