Ringing ears

Alone isn’t enough, I can’t be in touch
with calm and peace and serenity
when she’s in the other room just screaming at me.
I have nothing to give, baby girl.
Food, warmth, love, hugs, clean clothes,
what else can I do but tickle your toes,
you just cry so loud I feel it vibrate in my nose.
I know teeth hurt but I can’t comfort you
if you push away from me, backwards,
I don’t know where you’re trying to get to.
I don’t know you.
