Glass Shattered- Sad Poem


She came back from work one night….
Her mother laid on the couch drinking
Bottles of beers….

Drunk…

“Mother…go to sleep….” she told her mother…

“You don’t tell me to go to sleep you demon!” Her mother respond
Grabbing the bottle of beer and throw it on the floor…

The glass shattered on the floor…
So she went to pick them up…

Her mother stood up
Pulling onto her hair
And dragged her to the bathroom

Her mother demand her to look into the mirror
And she told her…
“You are not my daughter, you piece of shit!”
And bang her head against the wall..
And walked away…

Her back against the wall...slowly fell to the floor
Shedding many tears…

Place her head against her knee crying….

Asking God, what have she ever done to go through this?

She closed her eyes and think back all of the good memories..
Making Lilies flowers
Picking plums…
Cooking…
Dancing…
Her mother and her once had…

Why everything changed ? she thought to herself….

She wipe her tears and washed her face…
Went to checked on her mother…

Her mother fell asleep on the sofa….
And so she grab a blanket and cover her up from the cold…

Grab bottles of beers and clean up mess…
Kiss her mother on the forehead…
And said, "Goodnight mom, I love you"

Even though she have her stress….

I'm so sorry this happened to you. Alcohol causes more heartache. I pray she will find needed help. God bless you.

Hi always exploring, thank you. Yes, it is difficult. She is very abusive with drugs...and right now...I take every penny from her so she won't go get them. I think she's getting better but sometime a little aggressive when she is in need of alcohol. especially when she's having flashback. Today she doesn't seem to think about wanting alcohol...she want to eat food...
