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.

drug addiction has no prejudice whether saint or sinner, child or parent, brother or sister, young or old .. one must wear the hypocrisy if it fits ....sigh! :( the redeeming thing i see in your poem is that the child's love remains ..and tho faulty at parenting that bond between a mother and child is profound and obstinate ;) what a tragedy you set before your readers ..kind of sucks the breath from me :(((

Indeed thank you.
It is a sorrowing realisation that even in the most dire circumstances judgement never loses its power, this is really well written hon, emotively so :)

thank you Poppy
Wonderfully done. It is an emotional blow to discover that a parent is merely human and beset by their own demons. Good write, Thomas.

Powerful, honest and direct thoughts my friend.

The above lines down and dirty. My kind of poetry. Thank you Thomas for sharing the amazing poetry.

thank you Pryde.
While she might not have been the ideal mother we all think of, she was yours and obviously there was love there. Torturous to learn things such as this about a parent...and yet perhaps it is what makes us adults. There is no judgement of what you learned....just acceptance....in this write. I am sorry for you loss...for it is a loss. Lydi**

If this was an eulogy to a parent who did not live up to that name, kudos. Valentine

thank you valentine.
Powerful, real, no judgment, only the stark knowledge that things were as they became, and now are as a consequence, no longer. Heartbreaking for anyone to learn this lesson. xo.
