Devils Cake

He is so intensely angry
At everything that moves
his eyes, dull
nothing can make him smile
for his pain is much too great
he coughs as his heart roasts on an open squwere
little said and done
as he openly ignores me
maybe even smiling behind my back
perhaps one day he shall not be such a thwart
yet seemingly, he has yet to change
what embaressment
...being gazed upon with such annoyance glinting angrily in his eyes
what more anguish shall i bring about myself?
how badly can something hurt?
why does it sting so bad
when i keep slewing up?
while he most likely notices my flaws
my insecurities and worries,
my blush when i think of him
i need not conspire
for he is tall, like a tower
if i may say, he makes me sway
like a daffodil in rain
how come he doesnt say,
'Hello little lady, how are you today? '
my eyes see no one greater,
when seen, but not sought,
i crumble in his pressence
need not worry much though
for all have moments of heed
i miss his brutal stares and
hateful eyes
i only want his attention..
please talk to me..

Poem of the Day

poet Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

I heard the bells on Christmas day
Their old familiar carols play,
And wild and sweet the words repeat
Of peace on earth, good will to men.
