Little Boy: A Poem

I can’t be bothered by you

You rob me of my joy

Turning my smile into a frown

Playing with me like a toy.


Your energy is spent hurting

It is your mission in life

Negative thoughts all the time

Words stabbing like a knife.


You sit and think of ways to harm

Laughing gleefully like a child

No, a more fitting description:

A giggling hyena in the wild!


“Keep ‘em down and out”

Must be your purpose during the year

Telling me that I can’t do it

Feeding that internal fear.


No, I can’t be bothered by you

You’re through winding this toy

I’m not giving any more attention

To a grown-up little boy.

      I have to agree with Michael across the board on this one; it flows nicely and says so much in so few words, the mark of a very good writer. Well done my friend!

      xstatic, thank you! Yes, this is actually geared towards someone from a few years ago. Not a friend. Not a lover. Just a negative person that I'm very happy to not have in my life! I guess this wound is still open, though. He did a good job on me!

      Wow..great poem..funny you should choose to write this, I sent it to my daughter,who stated, you described a loser she was introduced to recently. You think there may be more than 1 in the world? Glad you got out, but sorry to hear there were scars...but you hide it well with your beautiful words..go girl...

      You brought out something many have experienced from someone, that is always good. Thumbs up.

      kj force, thank you! Sometimes I think emotional scars help to create the best poetry! At least it's good for something!

      Voted up and interesting. I love the comparison to being used like a toy. Think I remember being there and felt like one push of the button I go and another push and I stop. lol

      ImKarn23, it does take me awhile to get angry or ticked off, but when I do, I tell it like it is! Thanks for the comment!
