Mother’s love
a drop of acid in a cup of warm milk
the hand that mysteriously turns the key
and, locked up in hours of despair and solitude
survival of the flesh becomes meaningless
a burden to keep, a sacrifice, to hold on to
the elevation of mind and spirit.

Mother’s love
officially given and privately taken away
a torture of each and every day
temporary denial of  her faults
the reason for loss and the tool for

Loving mother
and having to turn the world upside down
giving without receiving
trapped in a child’s body
with the mind of a provider
having to stand and grow
on the quicksand of her corrupt mind.

Learning the meaning of love
elsewhere and far away
sheltering the soul
of the grown-up woman
and the sparkle of the child
in that ochre house
where the body can stand by the fire
feeling its warmth without being bunt.

Then daylight, like a presence
beams through a glass of fresh water
finding at the source
what couldn’t be received
able to pass it forward
and to move forward.

Mother’s unlove
like a drop of lie in an ocean of truth
absorbed, dissolved
while survival turned
into living, stepping out
for a walk with one’s forgiven self.

One can never have simpathy for those who do not see, but compassion towards them.
The circle of ascention is a road that leads to liberation, and wherever one dwells on its path is only the prospective they see in relation to where the beginning meets the end. In time they will curve around its bend and stand in the dawning of life's horizan.

Thanks Axilea, this was sooo kewl

There is a variety of emotions within your poem Axilea, though one can only truly find love through the forgiveness of oneself, as you have expressed, through all the unfortunate and fortunate moments of life, reflecting through each stage of living brings one into the reality of who and why we love...

very nice work...

I can so relate to this poem. I thought you were writing about my mother. Inspiring in moving on. Agony of living through it. Liz

WOW! Such sadness envelopes my own heart! for this person!
This tender soul! reaching out for accepted love!
This "MOTHER's " Poem is unique and deeply intense, as the reader and and the writer explore forgiving/and being forgave throughout these wonderful written verses! These images: WOW
Motherís love
a drop of acid in a cup of warm milk -

And knowing... A mothers' love is deep like the ocean and just as vast! Some mom's are tainted as we all learn in time... Forgiving is the key as we are alive to make it a possibility...

Axilea - Enjoyed the irony in each stanza of this journey from the child unloved becoming the mother who learns, "... the meaning of love
elsewhere and far away." Especially liked the contrasting images of,

Motherís love
a drop of acid in a cup of warm milk

beginning the poem and,

Motherís unlove
like a drop of lie in an ocean truth

in the last stanza. great lines throughout. - David

Very tenderly written from a forgiving/forgiven heart. That ability of yours to see clearly from an objective point of view throws an air of poignancy into whatever you right (write?) RIGHT! --A woman of truth, made of ocean... so what if a bit of debris falls in now and again? "Absorbed, disolved"... and somehow made "all right".

A strong, cohesive poem with natural, built-in progression, climax and glorious resolution. --Charlie

A well written piece,I enjoy reading it,take care

Reviewed by Kate Burnside 3/30/2009
I wish I were able to share similar thoughts so uniquely and expressively, Axilea. So much tenderness and compassion for the pained child, yet testament also to her strengths and resiliance - and ability to escape and grow through the windows of the mind and imagination. Lovely, tightly-crafted work as usual that also leaves us with so much slack in our rope that we can work with your ideas for far longer than just the read. Beautiful resolution here; love how this diffuses, like dye in water. I wonder how many of us girlies carry within us the burdens of our mothers emotional torments? Kate xx

Deeply emotional and painful and yet the poetry rises above the truths of it not in a superficial wordy way but profoundly. The final stanza is outstanding.

The many moods of mothers - some good, some terrible - very well penned, Axilea.

(((HUGS))) and love, Karla.

A kind loving mother can be the most precious gift in the whole world, but a hateful or indifferent mother can be the most painful experience to live through. I have had the first and watched while my daughter had the sad but true.

Reviewed by Gene Williamson 3/29/2009
As painful as this is to read, I admire (again), Axilea, the
poetry that flows from your pen. That last stanza, for example,
is pure art...from "a drop of lie in an ocean truth" to
"a walk with one's forgiven self." -gene.
Reviewed by Amber Moonstone 3/29/2009
This poem brings to mind how difficult being a mother can be. We expect perfection, in an imperfect world. There is no formula as to how to raise your child, each child and each mother is unique, and the normal ways do not always apply. The best thing that I got from your poem is that you must forgive anything that you have done for you know not better! As long as you do what you do from love, everything else will turn out fine.
Thank you for this profound poem, Axilea, you do have a way of making me think about things differently.
Peace, love, and light,
Amber "V"

The poetry is alive, with all the pain of a strange birth, it progresses into a fine piece of work.
Be proud of this.
