Jeffrey Dahmer: The Complete Poem Tony Hughes’s Mom Read | Netflix series | FAME

One of the most heartbreaking episodes of “Monster: The Jeffrey Dahmer Story” was when the serial killer took the life of Tony Hughes. The young man was deaf and was part of the long list of victims of this infamous character.

Jeffrey Dahmer murdered 17 teenage boys and young men between the years 1978 and 1991. Unfortunately, Anthony Hughes crossed paths with him in a gay bar and it is rumored that they began a friendship.

Tony was deaf and dumb, but even that did not save him from the insatiable hunger of the “Milwaukee Cannibal”. Her mother, Shirley Hughes, told the “State Journal” that “they thought he was back in madison when he didn’t come home” and that they didn’t find out about his disappearance until their work called them to tell him that he hadn’t shown up.

Since then, they began to search tirelessly and they put up a “Missing Person” sign all over the neighborhood. This generated that Dahmer changed his modus operandi and stopped going to the gay bar on South 2nd Street where she first met him.

Jeffrey Dahmer was tried after Tracy Edwards managed to escape from his apartment and call the police. In his home, they found dismembered body parts and photographs of the victims.

During this legal process, the relatives of various victims gave their testimony and one of them was Shirley Hughes, Tony’s motherwho recited a poem in honor of his son.

Why am I a victim in your cruel and merciless world,

even though I can’t speak out loud?

listen to me anyway

try to have mercy on my moans

Look at the tears that spill down my face

Realize that each one is a cry for help

Realize that my signs are showing you that I want to live

tell me what i did to you

to become a monster

to become a maniac

to become a demon

My god, who are you? What are you?

You’ve never shown me this side of you

I put my trust in you

I thought you were my friend until the end

But I didn’t know you as well as I thought

I never felt the end would be like this

Is there someone who can help me?

Mom, dad, sister, brother, anyone?

Please help me

What is happening to me?

everything seems to slow down

I’m confused, I’m sleepy

My coordination has been contaminated

My friend, what is it that you have given me?

What are you doing to me?

I am helpless

Is it exciting for you to know that I can’t defend myself?

And that the hardest fight of my life

is fighting to keep your eyes open,

hoping to see the dawn of a new day?

Yet you have full control over me

My life is in the hands of someone who was a friend,

but he became a stranger

who has become my worst nightmare

But one day I know you’ll get caught

you think you’re good at what you’re doing

Remember that whatever was done in the dark,

it will come out and the whole world will know how ugly you really are

Mom, I’m gone

My hope, my breath, my will to live,

has been taken from me against my will and emotionally

I know there is a thorn that pierces your heart day and night because of this

but i’m not very far

When you’re cold, I put my arms around you to keep you warm.

If you get sad, I will gently take your heart and cheer you up

If you smile, I will smile with you

and when you’re happy, I’ll become

I’ll know, because you’re thinking about it

2 fingers and a thumb mean “I love you” in sign language

my son was deaf

When you cry, take a tear

and place it outside on your window sill

And when it passes, I’ll trade it for one of my two fingers and a thumb, mama.
