Drinking for comfort, f*****g for food

Drinking for comfort, f*****g for food

A Poem by Gee
"

A take on a single mums plight

"
Four different fathers
a monochrome brood
drinking for comfort
and f*****g for food.
Best before blow jobs
use before shags
payment in polythene
half empty bags.
Laying and lying
but only to self
shop soiled, outdated,
left on the shelf

Eating is a hell of a habit to break... we survive as we must and just sometimes share fingertips softly holding a hand that understands what a hug can mean.

It was a sad poem to read but it was filled with so many true emotions I can tell.

This piece was hard for me to read but we do what we have to do to survive. It's sad to me that women are put in this position. It should not be this way. A bittersweet write for me but brutally honest. Well done!

Aye, more common than we'd like to believe. Cheers
I'm using discovery and it seems to keep putting me into contact with you like it knows something I don't. As for this and as well with the others your rhyme scheme is tight, the imagery is there, and more often than not I enjoy the hell out of them. So, I have to ask about the with best before part. Do you need with? Is it an instructive label on the bag? Usually like milk it starts best by yada yada or best before such and such date. Ditch the with is my critique my man, feels unnecessary. Otherwise, carry on!
