Love Inconsistency - Sarah Bellum Mental

My mother said I love you

at thirty years old.


is a way of saying

words that matter

that never mattered

to them, but it

mattered to me.

Reservations eaten

as Sunday brunch

beginning the continuation

of wisdom teeth

that erupted

in the back of my mouth

whispered wisdom

that just because

words aren't said

doesn't mean

she doesn't love you.


Sarah Bellum Mental focuses her poetry on blended families and what the word family means to someone that fought for everything she's gotten. She also covers topics of self-harm, molestation, rape, consent, just to name a few. She looks to give a voice to those too scared to speak of what they've been through. To provide light in the darkness of living life at times.
