untitled: a poem

This is a poem about my mother but it's for any uneven relationship.




She says
she loves me but
I have come to the conclusion
that our
definitions of love
differ.
When I ask for help
she sighs and
slowly stands away from me.
When she asks
for help
I sob and swiftly kneel
before her.
I figure I may be more
generous
But I wonder sometimes
if she is
more honest.
