Page 1, Own son\'s suicide attempt and response from sister



The key inserted hesitantly

The odour struck immediately

His bedroom enveloped completely

We surveyed the damage gravely

Approached hospital swiftly

Smiled at him benevolently

Although viewed abhorrently

We knew to grieve discreetly

Argued his case rationally

Like his mother actually

Would not do consistently

So no mental health facility

He returned sheepishly

Forced into complexity

A future of uncertainty

An absence of lucidity


Dogs love their friends and bite their enemies, quite unlike people, who are incapable of pure love and always have to mix love and hate ~ Sigmund Freud




My Normally Considerate Daughter

She glared at him

As we all ate

With unconcealed

Love and hate

She uttered words

She shouldn’t mention

‘You simply did it

For attention’.
