to you.

I will never write to you.

But I am trying to write about you.

Which is less than can be said for mom.

She raised me.

God bless her soul and send her

straight to heaven.

I will never write to you.

But I am trying to write about you.

Which is less than can be said for dad.

He is my hero.

I have always been daddy’s

tomboy princess.

I will never write to you.

But I am trying to write about you.

Which is far less than can be said for big brother.

He is my soldier.

No matter what life throws at us, I have

always loved him.

I will never write to you.

But I am trying to write about you.

Which is more than can be said for father.

I do not know him.

The poor man crosses my mind

less than you.

I will never write to you.

But I am trying to write about you.

Which is more than can be said for siblings.

They might exist.

By my own choosing, I

will never know.

I will never write to you.

But I am trying to write about you.

Which is less than you have done for me, mother.

I am grateful.

You gave me away out of love, so

I like to think.

I will never write to you.

But I am trying to write about you.

Which is hard; I do not think about you.

We are not stereotypes.

I have cried about it once and I

have not worried since.

I will never write to you.

But I am trying to write about you.

Which was bound to happen eventually.

I am not upset.

For a poet with my past, this is just

an occupational hazard.

I will never write to you.

But I have tried to write about you.

Which I hope you understand.

This is not a letter.

This is meant to be about you, it is not 

to you.
