Harsh But True - Poem by Missy Lynn

You are a monster
You destroy my life
You cause me fury and hate
A never-ending barrow of pain and strife

I used to imagine you were cute
I now feel I want to hurl
I am thoroughly disgusted
Why did I date a road-killed squirrel?

Why do you distress
And rot upon my soul?
Why must you slay my being?
Why lick my spirit bear, like an empty ice cream bowl?

Why persist in bringing me down
And continue killing my heart?
It is over. Why bother?
Time to part

Do not just end the starvation,
But carry it off and away,
Close the suffering, and start
A new day.
