Edwin Drood

I have read the writing on the wall, and the greatest mystery, is not the history of Jasper, Drood and one and all! I have met my maker and returned! What advice I'm giving to all those living, is just to learn what I have learned:

 

Life is dear. There can be no victory in defeat. If our-numbered, beat a fast retreat to the nearest shelter and dig in! When you live, then you win! Scratch and claw for every day you're worth! Make them drag you screaming from life, keep dreaming you'll live forever here on earth.

 

Is it clear? If you hear my voice, then you're alive. What a bloody marvel we survive, when you think of every risk we face in our mad human race!

 

Rosa’s Confession

Were you so blind? You could not see? I killed him, yes!

And it was wonderful to do, I do confess! To have him done, to do him in, to see it through? You surely know by now I meant to murder you! Were you so blind? You could not see? I killed him, yes! And it was wonderful to do, I do confess! To have him done, to do him in, to see it through? You surely know by now I meant to murder you!

 

Thought you I was so blind, as not to know your mind:

Of what intent each compliment you claimed you meant as kind. To feel myself unrobed and probed with every movement of your eyes? Oh, but realize! A child can go quite mad, and not know good from bad and calmly plan to kill a man, and feel but only glad.To rid herself, to bid herself a murderous goodbye? Not Edwin who I sought, but you! I meant for you to die!

Jasper’s Confession

How many times I’ve killed that Drood upon my flights,

My flights that burst the smug presumption of his rights,

His rights, as ever his rights to share my Rosa?s bed;

It took no smoke for me to picture Edwin dead!

That night I poured them both deep cups of laudanum,

And then to toast my Ned and Neville I drank some.

That’s when my greatest flight of fancy did take place,

I watched my hand outstretched towards Edwin’s pale white face? And in the moonfall, I saw my fingers clutching his neck so tightly, touching his sleeve, he fell so lightly?

 

But God, the deed was much too easily done, as much as over once it had begun. Such tragedy to finally make the kill, and not to awake to taste the thrill. Now I’ve confessed? Now we both can rest!

 

Puffer’s Confession

 

Oh God, have mercy: your forgiveness do I need! My string of sins ends here with this most dreadful deed! I only meant to save my Rosa, but it?s true? Oh, you bastard Jasper! Christ, I meant to murder you. Could I see my Rosebud threatened by this man of massive sin? He’d revealed his vile desires so I had to do him in!

To my endless ruination I took smoke to see me through.

In my sweet hallucination, I saw Drood and thought him you!
