Unwanted Guest - Poem by Katherine E. Land

Dear unwanted guest,
Now that the party is over, and there's no more fun to be had, could please be polite, collect your things, and kindly get the f**k out of my head? As it really is very rude to linger.
I'm not at all sure how you even convinced me to invite you in the first place.
I suppose you were charming.
But now that's washed off and I see the slob you really are.
Leaving your memories and indifference all over the place, messing up the joint.
Muddied footprints of false hopes that I might never be able to get out!
So if you don't mind I'll thank you to find the door then forget where I live.

But as horrible of a party crasher as you are, even I can't leave you without a few parting gifts.
Along with most of the blame which is rightfully yours, I leave you with my anger, a little compassion,
the joy of having been invited to my house in the first place,
and pity, for when you realize how comfortable you were here,
but that your not allowed back.
I hope it's not too heavy.
Please do try to be a better guest to your next gracious host.

Yours truly

    most of all I can feel the anger.
    I hope you can evict your 'unwanted guest'
    from your mind
