Mother’s (every)day

wishes in the air,
she
the centre point
of coverage, attention
as if everyone
proving a point,
Jumping the bandwagon!
Pretensions..
the accepted norm,
she pretending 
she is happy,
they pretending,
they are making her happy
still vaccum in her heart,
cravings in her swollen,
deep eyes,
longing for the unspoken
definition of love,care,
respect.. relegated to 
little engagement with her!
she understands
the multiple adjustments,
compromises..
Gone is the day 
not her woes,aches 
and emptiness within
she knows
asking it every day,
may be a sheer utopia 
is it ?

    Knowing is good, internalizing is better, reciprocation is the need! Your root is from that womb! Thanks
