"Nothing is impossible, the word impossible says i am possible" - Audrey hepburn <3

Mother, dearest,

How shall I start?

Cups of tea and

pleasantry remarks

will no longer due

for as nightfall settled in

I heard you rapping on another man’s chamber door.

Your actions,

father, dearest surely

will deplore.

Mother, dearest,

such class you have!

Whilst father slumbered

you were out

flaunting feathers like a peacock.

Those sauntering, buffoons

spilling brandy and whistling merry tunes.

Mother, dearest,

I used to care.

Your silky, dresses grazed

my cheek
sweet sounding tunes rocked me to sleep.

I watched as you dabbed

satin, streaks of rouge

and candy blush

on ivory skin.

Mother, dearest

How shall this end?

To what pleasure do I

owe seeing you again?

Your frame looks sunken,

rather thin,

you reach out for a warm embrace

I turn away, fingers trembling

at your touch.

To my chagrin, our family ties

mere memories of what might of been

are cast astray,

forevermore, they shall stay that way.

The author's comments:
This piece explains the relationship between a mother and her daughter. In many stories, its always the father who is caught in an act of infidelity. I wanted to describe a situation in which the mother was guilty. The poem has some sarcasm because of the phrase "Mother, dearest," Hope you enjoy and please comment!
