Thirsting Death

The flickering pain warns of the crisis. My watch is ending; I am nearing the line. Forget God, I’ve been forsaken.  Forget living, I do not have time. The searing pain commands more liquids. In hospice or homeless no future in sight. I am a forlorn, forgotten mother.   I am lonely and you care not of my strife. The profound pain speaks of lost love. Hatchets, knives, machetes and lies. Your mother loved her little children. I drink to forget, please let me die.
