Poem: Bitter.

bitter_1_original

She’s an
Urban goddess
With a pretty smile,
_____________________

With a great personality
Cloaked with
Classy style.
_____________________

You watched her
As she walked by,
Wishing you were bold enough
To say hi.
_____________________

You loathed your weakness
Towards her eminence,
So you revelled in bitterness,
Spewing hatred.
_____________________

Telling lies about her
To make you feel superior.
_____________________

But your features
Grew grotesque,
And you wondered
What could be behind it.
_____________________

Ugliness will always rise
To the surface.
_____________________

And as she goes
About her business,
Your bitterness will eat at you
Like flies on a carcass.
