"Take another picture of me Noelle"
I hear in the distant background
The phrase that begins all behavior
I watch you as you wear another new mini dress or bikini
You look in my eyes and say what?
Can't I have a good time?
I bite my tongue hard.
It scares me when you go out there.
I fear someone will hurt you and take you away.
You promise us it will just be one glass turns into more.
You go from Momma to Monster.
I watch you play out like a movie everytime.
You were suppose to watch over me,
But you left me here.
I want you back all the time.
But I remember I have to wait for you in the morning.
That is when we will pretend it never happened.
And I can wake up to call you Mom again.
