Broken doll

Often I wonder what a suicidal person feels or thinks
as my own mother did the deed
An alcoholic ballerina stood in front of the mirrors
A mother whose baby was taken from her…stood in front of the mirrors
A mother whose kid came to visit her telling stories about “her mom and the brand new sister”
A mother who had to became a friend for his own child
A woman whose husband was still pouring lies in her ear
All these persons in one single mirror
A broken doll with no alcohol
A truthful shard of silvered glass
No future left for an emptied body of any aims
Why not to flirt with death…then
Hope wears cotton slippers in this house…
