Confessional.

Confessional.

A Poem by Thomas Fitzgerald
"

That moment that makes or brakes you, indeed!

"
How perfectly repulsive the scene of that girl,
Deposited upon fleece now churned in ash black,
Steel ground to a fine point now dangles in skin,
Full of acrimoniousness disease an addiction pack.

Veins tapped out until finally they implode,
To the simple mind of children now mute,
Patters once heard never leaving the ear,
Oh you, how that promise now notes on funeral flute.

Brace yourself my dear man, she belongs to gossip,
A w***e, that b***h, so selfish, they cry in church!
Ah those the ones without sin casting pure gibberish,
Death now hangs in the air come down from your lofty perch.

Mother, I found you in that hovel, the confessional no less,
A needle bright as stars in the heavens allow so mild,
goodbye you divine spirit, I love you more now,
Goodbye again from your footsteps, your only child.

Good going buddy nice write-up and really shared your feeling you penned it well. Shared the correct meaning of death with feeling. It trapped my soul to know that the child is leaving in grief and pain. Her mother bidding him a last good by with her tears and torn soul which is wearing and expressing her love!

Thank you for sharing

A deep write, Thomas.

Truth or fiction, losing a parent in such a way would be like taking a sledgehammer to the chest. We all have parents, siblings or relatives that have problems with addictions and to lose one to something so avoidable is truly tragic.

I enjoyed the piece. Poignant and relevant all rolled into one. Nice work.

What I took from your poem, is just how mind-boggling the unconditional love of a child is. Everyone is scarred by the sins of their parents, but the strength of a child's love in so many cases remains untainted. I have no personal experience with addiction within my own family, but I was definitely impressed with how many people were touched by your writing.

This sad account ends on a happy note 'goodbye you divine spirit, I love you more now.' Your poem depicts well the reality of addiction and people's reaction to it. A formal format with unstilted rhyming, made a good read.

I think almost everyone faced with addiction comes across a tipping point in their lives. What a poignant write you have here, sir. I hope you're okay. I too once tried to numb myself to the world, only to realize my problems never went away.

It is intensely deep and as you set yourself in motion with each line you realise it's not getting any easier but more deeper and luring, I must say a writer's mind is a place of no man the thoughts are channeled in a manner that no one can ever understand what is going through their mind until they convey the message through writing, .... Thank you very much it's a very lovely poem to the poetry world.
