You Make Me Sick...

Updated on June 22, 2015

What you remind me of..

The sight of your face makes me sick

It reminds me of vomit, the one that is thick

The smell of it wreaks your breath

Causing someone’s death

The way you look at me, I feel in my mouth that after taste

You smell of garbage and waste

Every time you open your mouth, muck relinquishes

Is that even English?!

All the time you call and I answer

You make me sick, I rather have cancer

The thought of you even having another girlfriend

Her life she would condemn.

      Some woman never leave a relationship like that and its sad they don't. Thank you Faith for all your feedback. I love to hear how my poetry makes people feel or even how I could add different things to my writings to make it sound better.

      Wow, Elizabeth,

      I have not walked in your shoes, but I am sure these powerful emotions would emerge after having been in such a volatile relationship and the thought that one actually attempted to love someone who was abusive. So many do get caught in such a snare, but I am glad you did not allow such a toxic relationship to keep you down. The word "putrid" comes to my mind. Sadly, a lot of women do not make it out with their life.

      I see one of my dear ole virtual friends up there, Frank, has commented. He loves the dark genre of writing too. You may be the female version of him as far as your dark writings go ...almost as if you are related : )

      Peace and blessings

      My, you don't hold back, do you?! I like the style of this - it reminds me a little of British poet John Hegley:


      as we walk across the bridge across the Clyde

      I talk of the tide

      and the spring

      and the spring in the suspension

      but do not mention our tension

      is there any hope of a bridge over that divide


      a rope even

      or must we remain as strangers

      like the Pope and Glasgow Rangers
