Purge - We Love You

Updated on August 16, 2016

I am a mother, a metal head, a goth girl, and lover of all darkness. I'm also a writer, a cake decorator, and a general weirdo. FUN!

Oh yes, we all need a nice purge every now and then.

Purge, they say, let it all out

Don't keep things bottled up inside!

But then, I ask, what will I have

to hold onto, to dwell on?

Don't you know who I am?

Purge, they say, it'll make it all better!

Why should I? So you can stand back,

pointing your hypocritical finger,

snickering your god damned snickers

at my shortcomings?

Purge, they say, we'll love you better!

No, you have it wrong.

You'll love yourself better.

I hold the anger, the sadness,

the fear, the panic, and I

hold it close like a dear friend,

because I am Misery.

If I purge, like you say,

I'll have nothing left.

I'll be an empty, hollow shell.

Like you.

    foggy, great to see you around. I'm glad you enjoyed this. Sometimes I have to attack the paper or I feel I will explode. It's nice to know people can identify and feel the emotion behind the words. : )
