Portrait of Mother And Child by Julia Margaret Cameron


When I found her she was as a doll,
the porcelain kind
Kohl black eyes with slight infractions,
spider web eyes, fragile and glistening
Beautiful and beguiling they were,
they appeared to be missing something


Her lips moist, a dew kissed blue,
seemingly kissed the moon and beyond
Her skin a chalk white,
hue of life appearing drained
She seemed to have found frailty's other self,
her body motionless, limbs isolated


Not a victim of broken promises,
she lives eternal in dreams and nightmares,
She has become a silver bullet,
shattered in haunts and torments
She is the brine,
remeniscent bitter in tears


If only society had listened,
she was not a copycat
She is was and forever will be my first shining star,
beyond all doubt shadowed and not
You see she is my daughter,
driving home more than a soft knowledge of self abuse


(c)2005
~Nikki~


 


P.S. Society as a whole it seems has been stigmatized into believing that self abuse, mutilation, cutting and etc are mostly always a self conscious inflicted cry for attention, help and etc. Sadly for some it really is not, it is part of a Mental Health condition. So, before you judge or misdiagnose another try looking deeper!


Thank You!
From the mother of a child with ADHD and ODD.

A painting of a painting ~painted with colors of reality~ depicting
"Beyond Normal Reasoning" the heedful observation of a sage mother.

Healthy Long Life, Poet!

Oh chills as I read this. My son suffers from PPD/Autism and sometimes expresses self-abuse, a compulsion caused by
brain disfunction...This is such a BEAUTIFULLY written and haunting write! Thank you for sharing this, Nikki!

PS Love Cameron's photographs. She saught to acheive the affect of
classical painting in her work. Some might argue that if still living her photography would benefit by new technology but I disagree. It perfectly expresses the themes of the Renaissance that were popular in her day and is an F-stop in time...

Glad you're speaking out about this Sis. Nikki. Absolutely stunning connection between your interpretation of the portrait and a condition that has so many myths. Metaphors and descriptions are extremely vivid, sharply committed, yet smooth and textured, like the portrait itself.

blessin's, saving this one!

This poem peels off the heart's skin. Society is quick to judge what it doesn't understand and in doing so send many people to a deeper hell of isolation, but everytime a mother, patient, or sympathetic writer shines light on an aspect of mental health a few more members of society are enlightened and perhaps a few people who struggle with mental health will be spared the stigma born of ignorance. Thank you for this write and much love to you and your child. ~~Nordette

i understand the anguish you experience and i appreciate there is more to this condition than realized ... i would hope that science can one day understand the cause of this mental health condition and perhaps cure it or at least treat it more effectively ...

I used to think like that until I read a biographical account of this young black woman on another site that was into "cutting." No, I don't believe it is a cry for help exactly, it mostly derives from a feeling of worthlessness, at least that is what I got out of reading this person's account of her ordeal. Mental? Most assurdly it is that . . . In spades.

Nikki This is such a painful topic! I know someone who has fought this illness into adulthood. He is in his mid twenties and still has problems. You have written of it brilliantly!It must be so difficult to deal with in your own family. My thoughts and prayers are with you!
